Moscow, Feb 25 (RIA Novosti) Russia would never use force to solve the problem of Kosovo, Russia’s envoy to NATO has said. “This (use of force) will never take place,” Dmitry Rogozin said Sunday in an interview with the Vesti television channel in reply to a request to comment on his statement made at a Feb 22 Moscow-Brussels video conference and wrongly interpreted by a section of the press.

Referring to Rogozin’s statement on Kosovo, some reports said he had spoken of the possibility of the use of force to restore international law. This prompted an angry reaction from Washington.

Rogozin said he would advise US representatives to use reliable rather than dubious sources of information.

He said Russia would defend its position on Kosovo in the UN Security Council as its permanent member.
