Lavrov: Russia supports Belgrade-Pristina compromise

Russian FM Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday Moscow was interested in seeing the EU achieve practical results as the facilitator of the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue, but noted that they must be implemented in an impartial manner and that Pristina’s sabotage when it comes to respect of agreements, including the deal on a Community of Serb Municipalities, must be tackled.

Lavrov reiterated Russia was advocating respect of UN SC Resolution 1244, which he said must be the foundation for seeking any agreement with Pristina.

“Our position is unchanged, we support the seeking of compromise, but only one that suits the Serbs, not the tendencies that want confrontation in the region,” Lavrov told a press conference after meeting with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic in Belgrade.

Lavrov also welcomed Serbia’s balanced foreign policy and its policy of military neutrality, which he said was particularly important for the region.
