Why Kosovo is ineligible for membership in UNESCO?

• Because the request for its membership is a serious breach of the international law, the Constitution of UNESCO' The legally binding UN Security Council resolution 1244 (1999) and the Charter of the UN whose Article 25 says that "The Members of the UN agree to accept and carry out the decisions of the Security Council in accordance with the present Charter".
• Because according to the UN Security Council resolution 1244, which reaffirms the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (now Serbia), Kosovo and Metohija is an integral part of the Republic of Serbia, under the administration oBf the UN. Since Kosovo cannot be considered a State, it does not fulfill the basic requirement for membership set out by the UNESCO Constitution.
• Because unilateral attempts such as this one seriously harm and disrupt the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, under the auspices of the European Union in which mutually acceptable solutions for many complex issues  have been devised so far. The issue of the Serbian cultural heritage and the property of the Serbia Orthodox Church has not yet been discussed within the dialogue where it belongs.
• Because this is an unacceptable politicization of UNESCO which should not overtake the competences of the UN. Security Council as the highest authority for the preservation of the international peace and security. UNESCO should not serve as an instrument for the affirmation of an illegal and unilaterally declared independence of a part of the territory of one UN member state. The primary goal of UNESCO is to promote universal values of humanity through education, science and culture not to make political decisions with regard to the statehood.
• Because this would be a dangerous precedent, harmful for many states. This would open the door for other entities to follow the same path thus threatening territorial integrity and sovereignty of other member states.
• Because this issue is polarizing the membership of UNESCO.
• Because, besides not being a state, Pristina does not have moral credibility for membership. Anyone aspiring to UNESCO membership must prove not only in words but as well in deeds its commitment to the goals of the UNESCO Constitution, which certainly is incompatible with deliberate, systematic, vandal demolition of Serbian cultural and historic monuments with  the aim to remove the traces of centuries-long existence of Serbs in this area as well as the impunity of the perpetrators of  such barbaric acts unworthy of the 21st century. These acts are comparable only to the acts of destruction of cultural heritage by terrorist groups in the Middle East and elsewhere that the world is witnessing and UNESCO is strongly condemning.
• Because four Serbian orthodox monasteries  are inscribed on the UNESCO List of World Heritage in danger although the armed conflict in Kosovo is over for many years now. In danger from whom?
• Because the inclusion of this item in the provisional agenda of the 197th  session of the UNESCO Executive board raises serious concerns about the compliance with procedure and the respect of the established UNESCO rules. Just to mention that that even publishing of the document on the unacceptability of Kosovo's application for UNESCO membership from the standpoint of the international law, prepared by Serbian Delegation to UNESCO, as an official document, as we requested, was refused. And the only intention was the voice of Serbia also to be heard.
• Because we all would have to live with the negative consequences of such an irresponsible decision from the lesioning of the international law up to the fate of the Serbian cultural heritage in the province of Kosovo and Metohija which not only belongs to the Serbian people but also represents a part of the historical and civilizational heritage of modern Europe and the world.

OSCE Chairman-in-Office Dacic visits Azerbaijan

With his visit to Azerbaijan, today, First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia Ivica Dacic – in his capacity as OSCE Chairman-in-Office – started his three-day visit to OSCE Missions in the South Caucasus where he will also be visiting Georgia, on 2 June, and Armenia, on 3 June. I.Dačić was received by the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan I.Aliyev and the Chairmanof the Parliament of the Republic of Azerbaijan O.Asadov. Also he had a special conversation with E.Mammadyarov, MFA of the Republic of Azerbaijan. He held talks with representatives of political parties and the Azerbaijani community of Nagorno-Karabakh.

During the talks in Baku I.Dačić said that he would like to indicate that this region is of great importance for the stability of Europe as a whole, and that it is customary for the Chairman-in-Office to visit the region, i.e. to visit Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia. He stressed that by paying a visit, they also wish to provide assistance, meaning that they would like to see how they may contribute to the resolution of the conflict. “Based on our own experience, the experience of Serbia, I sure that the only way to address problems is through dialogue, requiring the political will of all parties to reach a solution.” The Minister underlined that the good will of Serbia, i.e. the OSCE Chair, to give good offices, both through the efforts of Personal and Special Representatives, and Co-Chairs of the Minsk Group, in order to reach solutions acceptable to all parties. The situation requires commitment of other, bigger countries as well, for it is important to honour the ceasefire agreement, the truce that has long been reached, but unfortunately, there is still a grim record of victims and casualties.
The Serbian Foreign Minister also pledged to Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Mammadyarov that he would discuss with Armenian Minister Nalbandian the issues related to imprisoned and missing persons, as well as initiatives concerning the possibility of a more liberal concept of freedom of movement in the region.
The Minister stressed his belief as OSCE Chairman-in-Office, the OSCE should be a partner of all the countries, wherever it is present, and that it should assist in addressing conflicts and supporting reforms in order to be a valuable factor there. “The OSCE has been present in Serbia for as many as 20 years now and we had different experiences in that respect. Serbia is one of the countries having its own experience with the issue of double standards, and has for some time even been suspended from OSCE activities, and it is currently chairing the Organization. It is therefore necessary to seek the best possible ways for genuine practical implementation of the OSCE principles enshrined in the Helsinki Final Act, without double standards.”
Speaking about the experience of Serbia, Dacic said that she was sure his country particularly sensitive to the issue of the territorial integrity and sovereignty, as Kosovo was an example for a lot of double standards.
He particularly underlined that it is important that there is the political will to resolve all these issues on all sides, and if it exists. The organization, which currently presides over Serbia will do everything to assist in the operationalization of all these different ideas and try to develop a permanent solution to this conflict, which would be in the interest of all.
Minister Dacic emphasized in Baku that Serbia and Azerbaijan are friendly countries and strategic partners, and that there is a mutual willingness to develop bilateral relations, in the political and economic areas, including sports and culture.
The Serbian Foreign Minister particularly drew attention to the fact that Azerbaijan would be hosting the first European Games, where Serbia would have 132 athletes, and that the attendance of President Nikolic at the opening ceremony was expected.
