UN Secretary General, Bank Ki-moon has published the quarterly report of the political developments in Kosovo.

In this document, he expresses his concern for the violence that the opposition in Kosovo is manifesting against state institutions.

Mr. Bank Ki-moon says that the opposition’s actions have led to the postponement of several of the aspects of the agreement between Belgrade and Pristina, especially in the creation of the Association of Serb Communes.

On the other hand, the UN Secretary General praises Belgrade’s and Pristina’s efforts to continue with the high level meetings in the framework of the EU brokered dialogue.

According to him, the overall security situation in Kosovo has remained sustainable during this period, in spite of the political violence during the protests.

“The use of violence and the opposition’s rhetoric is a cause for serious concern. Such actions are unacceptable and they have no room in a democratic society”, Ban Ki-moon said.

The report prepared by the UN Secretary General includes the period from 16 October of last year until 15 of January this year and will be discussed later this month in the UN Security Council. /ibna/
