Kosovo before the International Court of Justice

Serbia wants to have the International Court of Justice in The Hague look into whether Kosovo's declaration of independence is consistent with international law. Stavri Kalopsidiotu, lawyer and member of Cyprus' Progressive Party of Working People (AKEL) in the European Parliament, reflects on the possible consequences of Serbia's action. "Perhaps it comes as a surprise for all those who spoke prematurely of a defeat for 'established law' and the weakening of the principle of sovereignty and political and territorial integrity of countries. ... It is the hope of all small and weak countries on this planet that these proceedings will not give the green light for redrawing the world's borders. ... The resolution of the UN General Assembly [to agree to Serbia's resolution that the case should be investigated in The Hague] theoretically puts a brake on corresponding claims such as those of Kosovo."
