Singapore will support Serbia's initiative to seek, at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly, the advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice in The Hague on the legality of the unilateral proclamation of the independence of Kosovo, Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic said on Tuesday.

"I can say with pleasure that I have been informed by Singapore Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Balaji Sadasivan in today's talks that Singapore will vote in favor of the resolution that Serbia will submit at the UN General Assembly in September," Jeremic said.

"Singapore does not intend to recognize the unilaterally proclaimed independence of Kosovo and it considers this a dangerous precedent that could cause instability throughout the world," the Serbian foreign minister said.

Within this diplomatic offensive aimed at securing the widest possible support to Serbia's initiative, Jeremic yesterday visited Malaysia, which decided to freeze the procedure of the recognition of the unilateral independence of Kosovo.
