On December 4, heads of the governments of Kosovo and Serbia will represent their countries in the next proceedings of the UN Security Council in New York.

Foreign Ministry of Kosovo has confirmed that the session, which was scheduled to take place in November, will be held at the beginning of December, following Serbia’s request to postpone.

“December 4 was decided to be the date for the holding of the UN Security Council session on Kosovo and it was agreed that both countries should be represented by their prime ministers”, declared Bashmir Xhemaj, political adviser of the Foreign Ministry of Kosovo, Enver Hoxhaj.

This meeting will present the regular quarterly report of the UN Secretary General, Ban ki-Moon on Kosovo. Serbia had demanded the postponement of this session due to the reception organized for the head of the Albanian government, Edi Rama and the temporary release from Hague of the Serb radical leader, Vojislav Sheshel.

While it’s certain that Serbia will be represented by PM Aleksandar Vucic, it’s still unclear as to who will represent Kosovo.

So far, there are several options, because Kosovo can be represented Hashim Thaci as acting PM, Thaci as the new prime minister nominee and accepted by LDK or Isa Mustafa as PM accepted by PDK or any other politician who will be nominated for PM in case PDK and LDK cannot agree for the post of the PM to be given to one of the leaders of these two parties. /ibna/
