Azerbaijan, Baku, 1 April / Trend corr K. Ramazanova/ Romania is not going to recognize the independence of Kosovo until there is a consensus between Pristina and Belgrade, and without the UN Security Council's resolution, the Romanian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Nikolae Ureke said at a press conference on 1 April.

" Romania is operating in Kosovo on the basis of Resolution 1244," the Ambassador said.

According to Ureke, Romania will do nothing- which can be considered as a support to the independence of Kosovo.

On 17 February, the Kosovo Parliament one-sidedly proclaimed independence from Serbia. Many EU countries, USA and Japan recognized the independence of Kosovo. Russia and Serbia call Pristina's step to be illegal due to the violation of UN Security Council's Resolution 1244 which confirms the territorial integrity of Serbia and undermines the norms of the international law.
