Albanian Ambassador Hodja could not answer Nebenzi’s question about whether the UN recognizes Kosovo.
UN, March 18 – RIA Novosti. Albania’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ferit Hoca tried to explain that the speeches of the Kosovo representatives in the UN Security Council, unlike the speeches of the DPR representatives, were legitimate, but he could not answer the question of the Permanent Representative of Russia. Vasily Nebenzi on whether Kosovo is a UN-recognised territory.
On Friday, Western countries did not allow the report of DPR Ombudsman Daria Morozova to be heard in the Security Council.

In response, Nebenzia recalled that the Security Council regularly invites Kosovo representatives to speak at meetings, accusing the West of “a small, unscrupulous game”.
“What happened today with Daria Morozova is a reason to think about how we will consider requests for briefings from our colleagues in the future. Our American colleague said that listening to speakers from unrecognized regions is unacceptable and a violation of resolutions. However, for example, an invitation to the Kosovo Representative Council, the Security Council It is a clear violation of Resolution 1244. We will take into account the principled stance of our American colleagues on this matter.”

Should we remind our Russian colleagues that the International Court of Justice issued an advisory opinion stating that Kosovo’s declaration of independence adopted in 2008 did not violate international law? We must remind you that the international recognition of . aforementioned.
