“(Representatives) Kosovo is sitting in the hall with members of the UN, this is completely wrong. In the UN building, doing such things is simply disrespect for the UN, and gross disrespect for the UN Secretary-General, ”said Churkin.
The very fact of inviting Kosovo representatives indicates that “everything in this building is subject to the orders of Barack Obama,” the permanent representative noted.
Kosovo after the proclamation of independence from Serbia in 2008 was recognized by more than 100 countries. But there are also countries that did not recognize the sovereignty of the republic, among them Serbia and Russia, which has the right of veto. In this regard, the entry of Kosovo into the UN is excluded.
