The Resolution on Kosovo-Metohija, adopted by the Serbian parliament in the night between Saturday and Sunday with 175 votes in favor, stipulates that all future agreements with Pristina must be in accordance with this document and all solutions must be in line with the Serbian Constitution and UN Security Council Resolution 1244, Tanjug news agency reports.
The Resolution takes into account the fact that the Autonomous Province of Kosovo-Metohija plays a central role in the politics, economy, security and the cultural and spiritual identity of the Republic of Serbia and its people.
Its goal is to achieve a long-term state and national goal – the preservation of Serbia’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, economic development, protection of Serbia’s political, economic and security interests in the territory of Kosovo-Metohija, a better life for all citizens through EU accession, and a demographic recovery.
The Resolution upholds the views presented in all resolutions, declarations and decisions on Kosovo-Metohija passed by the Serbian parliament and takes into account the decisions of the United Nations General Assembly and Security Council. It stresses the need for continued and coordinated action which requires a multigenerational dedication, as well as putting to use all of the institutional, scientific, academic and political experience accumulated over two centuries of development of modern Serbian statehood.
The Resolution recognizes the possibility that planned and systematic work on achieving this state and national objective can serve as the center of a gradual yet steady coming together, a lasting strengthening of social cohesion, building and affirmation of national identity, and Serbia’s contribution to the global social and political community.
The text relies on a united national approach to the Kosovo issue as a functional political mechanism, in which all institutions, operating in line with their constitutionally and legally defined mandates, work in coordination with each other to realize the defined state and national goals, solve open and current political issues and operationally implement agreements that have been reached and will be reached between representatives of the Republic of Serbia and the interim institutions of self-government in Pristina.
