Moscow wants Washington and Brussels to apply pressure on Kosovo to ensure it fulfils the UN Security Council's decisions, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in a joint press conference with his Serbian counterpart Ivica Dacic in the Russian capital on Wednesday.

Dadic on his part thanked Russia for "the support they give when we're talking about protecting our territorial integrity and sovereignty," adding that without Moscow's help, Serbia is "not capable of defending its national interests."

Going on to discuss the Syrian settlement, Lavrov said that the next step is the creation of the Constitutional Committee.

"The situation on the ground is no obstacle to this, the situation on the ground is more or less stable, but we need to solve the problem of neutralising terrorist strongholds in Idlib," said Lavrov.

The Russian diplomat also commented on his recent meeting between his Armenian and Azerbaijani counterparts, stating that both Erevan and Baku are interested in solving the long-lasting Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
