The agreement was struck to allow Kosovo Serbs to take part in Serbia’s parliamentary and presidential elections, which fall on 6 May.
UNMIK noted that the OSCE has committed to facilitate voting in line with the Security Council’s resolution 1244 – adopted in 1999 following the end of fighting in Kosovo – which established the mission in the country.
Last month, Secretary-GeneralBan Ki-moon praised the progress made in the dialogue facilitated by the European Union between Serbia and Kosovo, saying the talks are creating a better foundation for peace and stability in the region.
A dispute between Kosovo and Serbia over the control of two border crossings in northern Kosovo resulted in several violent clashes between local Serb residents and the NATO-led Kosovo Force last year. Tensions eased after dialogue resumed.
