THE HAGUE - At a meeting with the secretary-general of the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH), Christophe Bernasconi, Serbian Justice Minister Maja Popovic called for rejection of requests by the so-called Kosovo to accede to HCCH conventions and be admitted to the organisation, noting that the so-called Kosovo is "no state under international law, but a territory that is a part of the Republic of Serbia."

She noted that the so-called Kosovo's accession to HCCH conventions that were open to accession by all states was unacceptable to Serbia and that the organisation was expected to act entirely in line with the UN Charter and respect the legally binding nature of UN SC Resolution 1244, the Ministry of Justice said in a statement.

The meeting also addressed ways of advancing the cooperation between Serbia and the HCCH as the most significant international organisation engaging in unification of private international law.

The parties also noted that Serbia actively participated in the work of the HCCH plenary assembly and the organisation's other permanent bodies.
