Serbia clashes with Kosovo at UN debate

Belgrade and Pristina have once again exchanged accusations, at a debate on Kosovo, at a UN Security Council meeting on November 16.

“There cannot be reconciliation with neighbouring Serbia if this country is not held accountable for the crimes committed in during the last war in Kosovo”.

This was how the ambassador of Kosovo in the US, Vlora Citaku, started her speech during the meeting of the Security Council of the United Nations, which discussed a quarterly report on Kosovo.

The diplomat from Kosovo said that the Serbian side has not taken any steps to shed light on the serious crimes committed by Serbs in Kosovo.

“We have contributed in the investigation of alleged crimes committed by Kosovars, while you haven’t done anything. Twenty thousand women have been raped in Kosovo and the number of Serbs who have been indicted is zero. 1262 children have been brutally murdered and the number of accused people is zero. Thousands of people have disappeared and the Serb government builds above massive graves. There cannot be reconciliation without being held accountable,” Citaku said.
