Russian, Chinese and Indian foreign ministers called for the resumption of talks on Thursday between Serbia's leaders and Kosovo on the status of the disputed territory.
"Russia, India and China call for the resumption of talks between Belgrade and Pristina under the framework of international laws to seek a solution for the Serbian territory," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told a press conference here.
Lavrov called for the Kosovo issue to be settled "exclusively on the basis of international laws" and rejected the independence of Kosovo. He said the unilateral declaration of Kosovo independence violated UN Security Council resolution 1244.
The top diplomats are here for various meetings on global and bilateral topics, ranging from tackling drug trafficking to climate change.
