WHY KOSOVO IS INELIGIBLE FOR MEMBERSHIP IN UNESCO?

Because the request for its membership is a serious breach of the international law, the Constitution of UNESCO, the legaly binding UN Security Council resolution 1244 (1999) and the Charter of the UN Security Council in accordance with the present Charter".

  • Because unilateral attempts such as this one seriously harm and disrupt the dialogue between Belgrade and Priština, under the auspices of the European Union in which mutually acceptable solutions for many comnplex issues have been devised so far. The issue of the Serbian cultural heritage and the property of the Serbian Orthodox Church has not yet been discussed within the dialogue where it belongs.
  • Because this would be a dangerous precedent, harmful for many states. This would open the door for other entities to follow the same path thus threateninng territorial integrity and sovereignty of other member states.
  • Because, besides not being a state, Priština does not have moral credibility for membership. Anyone aspiring to UNESCO memership must prove not only in words but as well in deeds its commitmment to the goals of the UNESCO Constitution, which certainly is incompatable with deliberatge, systematic, vandal demolition of Serbian cultural and historic monuments with the aim to remove the traces of centuries-long existence of Serbs in this area as well as the impunity of the perpetrators of such barbaric acts unworthy of the 21st century. These acts are are comparable only to the acts of destruction of cultural heritage by terrorist groups in the Middle East and elsewhere that the world is witnessing and UNESCO is strongly condemning.
  • Because the inclusion of this item in the provisional agenda of the 197th session of the UNESCO Executive board raises serious concerns aboutg the compliance with procedure and the respect of the established UNESCO rules. Justo to mention that even publishing of the document on the unacceeptability of Kosovo's application for UNESCO membership from the standpoint of the international law, prepeared by Serbian Delegation to UNESCO, as an official document, as we requested, was refused. And the only intention was the voice of Serbia also to be heard.
  • <li style="&quot;text-align:" justify;"=""> Because we all would have to live with the negative consequences of such an irresponsible decision form the lesioning of the international law up to the fate of the Serbian cultural heritage in the province of Kosovo and Metohija which not only belongs to the Serbian people but also represents a part of the historical and civilizational heritage of modern Europe and the world.
