SRSG Ziadeh holds regular consultations in Belgrade ahead of Security Council, meets with Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić
The need to turn commitments into practical actions to benefit all communities was stressed by the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of UNMIK Caroline Ziadeh, during a series of meetings in Belgrade.
SRSG Ziadeh met with political leaders and diplomatic missions during her regular consultations over the past two days, in advance of the upcoming United Nations Security Council meeting on Kosovo.
The Head of UNMIK met President Aleksandar Vučić earlier today to discuss issues of current mutual concern, including recent developments on the normalisation of relations between Belgrade and Pristina.
During the meeting, she conveyed the importance of maintaining constructive engagement to ensure political commitments translate into concrete actions that will ultimately benefit the population - with a view to long-term regional possibilities of progress. This included discussions on the Association of Serb-majority Municipalities, as well as other commitments made during the recent EU-led talks.
SRSG Ziadeh also met with Prime Minister Ana Brnabić, First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ivica Dačić and various representatives of the diplomatic community.
SRSG Ziadeh will report to the United Nations Security Council on 27 April 2023.
