THE SLOVAK PARLIAMENT has approved a resolution saying the future status of Kosovo must be based on Serbia's legitimate requirements, as well as respect for the UN Charter and other international legal standards.
The 150-member parliament approved the resolution on March 28 with 123 members voting in favour. Nineteen MPs abstained from the vote.
Slovakia's legislative body expects the Serbian government to find a solution to the situation in cooperation with other EU member states. The solution would have to include clear prospects for integrating the West Balkan countries.
Foreign Affairs Minister Ján Kubiš said that Slovakia, as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, will be actively involved in further diplomatic talks. The minister said the talks should result in a new resolution of the UN Security Council.
