More Signs that Serbia is Giving Up on Kosovo: It Plans to Seek an ICJ Opinion
Serbia announced yesterday that it would seek an ICJ advisory opinion on the legality of Kosovo’s declaration of independence. This, to me, is further evidence that the Serbs have no real ability to alter the Kosovo outcome; the plan now is just to harass from a distance and hope Kosovo falls apart on its own. In order to get an ICJ advisory opinion, the Serbs need a majority of the General Assembly to vote for a referral (good luck!) and even if they win that, the ICJ would give them … an advisory opinion that might take years to produce.
