At the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, held in Argentina’s capital, Buenos Aires, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic thanked countries that did not recognize Kosovo’s unilateral declaration of independence and thus supported the preservation of the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Serbia, reported Radio Television of Serbia (RTS).
Dacic said that they have demonstrated their commitment to the principles of international law, the United Nations Charter and the UN Security Council Resolution 1244.
“Serbia is consistently adhering to the view that the disputed issues can be solved only with full respect for the principles and documents, through a dialogue aimed at reaching compromise and durable solutions,” Dacic said.
He is convinced that only a consistent principled position represents a guarantee that in the future the rights of small and less developed countries will be respected in similar situations.
The UN Conference dedicated to South-South Cooperation, which in the past 40 years, following the adoption of the Action Plan from Buenos Aires in 1978, through continuous growth of cooperation and inclusion of an increasing number of actors, has affirmed and developed as an important segment in the process of improvement of contemporary political and economic relations, or as a successful modality of international cooperation for sustainable development.
