President of the Republic of Kosovo, Atifete Jahjaga and that of Serbia, Tomislav Nikolic, will confront each other in New York today for the presentation of the quarterly report of the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Mun about the developments in Kosovo.

For the first time, Kosovo will be represented in this meeting by president Atifete Jahjaga. Meanwhile, Serbia will be represented by president Tomislav Nikolic.

Even in this report, the Secretary General praises the active participation of Pristina and Belgrade in the EU brokered talks, although they have been slow due to the general elections in Serbia and the ones in Kosovo which will be held in ten days.

UN Secretary General mentions several challenges relating to the implementation of the agreement, such as the establishment of the Association of Serb Communes and integration of parallel courts in the legal framework of Kosovo, to underline “the necessity of the continuation of progress and a full implementation of the April 19, 2013 agreement”.

UN chief further says that “the strengthening of law and order is a long term challenge and the improvement in this domain remains a constant concern for the international community”.

The report includes the period from January 21 to April 15, while Republic of Korea holds the Security Council presidency this month. /ibna/
