 Serbia has launched its campaign against Kosovo's membership in INTERPOL, though the voting session in the General Assembly of this organization is held in October.

Kosovo will apply for the third time to join INTERPOL.

Serbia's Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefaqovic has said that Kosovo's request for membership in INTERPOL is in violation of its basic rules and leads to the politicization of this professional police organization.

According to him, Kosovo's membership in this organization "would be a serious violation of international law and INTERPOL procedures".

Stefanovic made these statements after a meeting with the vice-president of INTERPOL and the head of the Russian National Bureau, Aleksandar Prokopčuk, where he showed Serbia's motives to oppose Kosovo's accession to INTERPOL.

"How can Kosovo's institutions be expected to respect international law and INTERPOL rules when their security forces bypass the United Nations?!" Stefanovic said.

He said that according to UN Security Council Resolution 1244, Kosovo is a territory of Serbia and therefore does not have the right to apply for membership in INTERPOL.

According to Stefanovic, Kosovo's request for membership in INTERPOL is in violation of the Korel Resolution adopted by the General Assembly of INTERPOL at a meeting in Beijing in 2017, which according to him states clearly that only member states or observers at the UN may become members of INTERPOL, which, as Stefanovic said, Kosovo is not part of these states.

According to the Serbian media, INTERPOL Vice-President Aleksandar Prokopcuk has praised the co-operation of Serbian and Russian police, particularly in the fight against organized crime, narcotics and terrorism.
