NEW YORK – A UN Security Council meeting to discuss the UN secretary-general’s latest three-monthly report on the situation in Kosovo began in New York Thursday, with Serbia represented by Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic.

In the report, covering the period from April 16 to July 15, 2016, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged leaders in Belgrade and Pristina to continue the dialogue on normalisation of relations as well as demonstrate a readiness for compromise to ensure a quicker conclusion of the process to the benefit of all.

Commenting on the EU-facilitated dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, Ban said not much progress had been made in practical implementation of agreements but noted that both sides had expressed a commitment to continue the dialogue.
