BELGRADE - Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on Thursday met with UNMIK head Zahir Tanin to discuss the situation in Kosovo-Metohija, with the UN secretary-general's latest report on the work of UNMIK - to be presented in the UN Security Council in October - currently under preparation.

The parties also discussed the upcoming elections in Kosovo-Metohija, the Serbian president's press office said in a statement.

Vucic expressed the expectation international representatives would help the elections to proceed peacefully and that Serbs would be able to exercise the right to freely elect representatives who would protect their interests.

UN Security Council sessions on the work of UNMIK are important for Serbia for the sake of maintaining the continuity of assessing the issue of Kosovo-Metohija and providing regular information on the political and security situation there, "which is far from being calm and stable, with frequent tensions and incidents," Vucic was quoted as saying.

"The presence of the UN - UNMIK - as well as other international missions in Kosovo-Metohija is more than necessary as a guarantee of the Serbs' security," Vucic noted.
