On the eve of the next meeting for Kosovo in the United Nations Security Council, which will be held this Friday, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Kosovo, Mr. Albin Kurti received today in a meeting the Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations , Mr. Zahir Tanin.

Mr. Tanin presented in brief the content of the report of the United Nations Mission in Kosovo that will be presented to the Security Council. The report focuses on government reform, rule of law, security issues and the pandemic situation and management.

Prime Minister Kurti thanked Mr. Tanin for informing him of the report and raised some concerns regarding pluralism and democracy in Kosovo Serb-majority municipalities. Being on the eve of local elections, it is important to have free and democratic elections, where every citizen of the Republic votes on the basis of personal convictions and is not subject to pressure and intimidation and when such cases are present they should be monitored and reported, he said.
