MOSCOW (AFP) — Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov urged Middle Eastern states not to recognise Kosovan independence on Tuesday, warning that this could encourage other breakaway regions.

"Undoubtedly serious human rights abuses have occurred," Lavrov told the state newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta in an interview published before he was due to hold talks with Middle Eastern leaders.

Russia is making now their stand clear in their Middle East tour, same time when Cheney is making their points clear... I think that there is Kosovo much in the table, with Iran on the other side...

In diplomacy: You get, and you give.

I think the showdown in politics is now most complicated and hot one. We have Kosovo, Iran, Syria and missile shield in the table. Afghanistan is losing its cargo bases in Russian follower regions Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekizstan... Georgia and Ukraine is in tipping point with alliance in west.

- Israel is pushing towards Syria and Egypt.
- Russia is pushing towards Kosovo and Georgia
- USA is pushing towards Iran and Pakistan

Who will start actions, and where, who will stance in the other side?

Clashes in Kosovo orchestrated - UN mission

BELGRADE, March 18 (RIA Novosti) - UN officials in Kosovo told a joint press-conference on Tuesday the clashes in the self-proclaimed state on Monday, when a Ukrainian peacekeeper was killed and dozens injured, were orchestrated.

The violence in the Serb-dominated area of Mitrovica began when UN police and NATO-led KFOR troops launched an operation Monday morning to regain control of a UN court building seized last week by ethnic Serbs.

Larry Rossin, a senior official with the UN mission in Kosovo, told local media in Pristina on Tuesday that, "It is clear to us that the violence was orchestrated," adding, "we believe we know who was responsible for this."

Serb rioters attacked UN forces with rocks, grenades and Molotov cocktails as they tried to remove protesters from inside the courthouse.

Belgrade has accused the peacekeepers of using excessive force against the demonstrators and sent a letter of complaint to the UN Secretary General, which has been reportedly received.

According to latest reports, over 100 Serbs have been wounded in the worst outbreak of violence in the region since Kosovo declared independence on February 17.
