International showdown nears as UN General Assembly to discuss Kosovo

The UK is indicating to Serbia that it should focus on joining the EU, rather than contesting Kosovo's declaration of independence.

Serbia has submitted a resolution to the UN calling Kosovo's secession “unacceptable.”

Britain's Foreign Minister and other Western diplomats are trying to persuade Belgrade to reconsider the resolution before it goes before the UN General Assembly.

But Marko Gasic from the British-Serbian Alliance for Peace thinks this will have the opposite effect.

“I see no prospects for Serbia joining the EU in the immediate decades to come, and therefore I see nothing that the EU can offer Serbia,” he told RT.
