Serbian President Boris Tadic will head a Serbian delegation at the 66th Session of the UN General Assembly in New York from Wednesday until September 24.

Serbian President Boris Tadic will head a Serbian delegation at the 66th Session of the UN General Assembly in New York from Wednesday until September 24.

On Wednesday, Tadic will attend the opening of the General Debate at the 66th UN General Assembly, followed by an official lunch hosted by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Afterwards, Tadic he will be a guest at a traditional reception organized by U.S. President Barack Obama.

The Serbian president will address the General Assembly on Friday, September 23, as part of the General Debate.

On the sidelines of the General Assembly session, Tadic will have a series of bilateral meetings with presidents, prime ministers and foreign ministers of UN member countries.

During his stay in New York, the Serbian president will focus on the Kosovo issue, that is, the situation in the northern part of the province, since the UN and the Secretary-General's six-point plan from 2008 are, for Serbia, the most favorable framework for solving the issue.

One of his bilateral meetings could be with EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton, it was announced in Brussels.

After EULEX and KFOR started implementing the new customs agreement in northern Kosovo, Tadic and Ashton are expected to confer on the sidelines of the General Assembly session in New York, Ashton's spokeswoman said in Brussels on Monday.

One week prior to the General Assembly session, the UN Security Council met at the request of Serbia and Russia to discuss the situation in northern Kosovo.

At the session, Ban expressed deep concern over the establishment of customs control in northern Kosovo and the consequences this might have for the peace and stability on the ground, calling on everyone to refrain from unilateral moves which could lead to an escalation of tension in the region.

Deputy Head of the Department of Peacekeeping Operations Edmond Mulet said at the session that the customs stamp issue was resolved in the agreement Belgrade and Pristina reached on September 2, but there was no deal regarding customs officers at the Jarinje and Brnjak crossings.

Three high-level meetings will also be held during this session of the UN General Assembly.

The first is dedicated to prevention and control of non-communicable diseases, the second addresses desertification, land degradation and drought in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication, while the third will commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Durban Declaration and Programme of Action, adopted at the 2001 UN World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance.

Meetings and symposium on international terrorism and nuclear safety are also on the agenda.

One of the dominant issues in the debate is expected to be the Palestinians' attempt to change their observer status in the UN, but details of their proposal are still not known.
