MOSCOW CRITICIZES INTERNATIONAL FORCES IN KOSOVO OVER DJURIC, IVANOVIC

MOSCOW, 4 April 018 (Beta) - Moscow criticized international forces in Kosovo on April 4 for "looking the other way" to the benefit of the authorities in Pristina. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zaharova said at a regularly scheduled news conference that the international forces in Kosovo, based on Resolution 1244 of the U.N. Security Council, had the responsibility for the safety of non-Albanians and of overseeing the Kosovo police. Yet the international forces openly maintained the position of looking the other way during the arrest of Marko Djuric, head of the Serbian government's Office for Kosovo and Metohija, Zaharova said. They just stood by watching and did not take action within their mandate to prevent the illegal actions of the Pristina authorities, Zaharova stated. According to her, the Djuric incident and the murder of Oliver Ivanovic have sharply raised the stakes in Kosovo.
