Serbian Minister Takes Kosovo Argument to UN | World News | Deutsche Welle | 14.08.2008
Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic was heading to New York to seek UN support for his country's plan to challenge Kosovo's independence at the International Court of Justice.

A foreign ministry statement on Thursday, Aug. 14, said Jeremic will submit a resolution to the UN General Assembly seeking an opinion from the Netherlands-based court about the legality of Kosovo's secession from Serbia.


Jeremic, who was set to travel to New York on Thursday will "submit Serbia's official draft of the resolution for a procedure before the UN general assembly," the foreign ministry statement said. "A draft calls for the UN General Assembly to seek ICJ advisory opinion on a legality of the unilaterally proclaimed independence of Kosovo."

Actually, I doubt there's any connection. I posted a link to this a while back. It seems to be proceeding at its own pace, independent of other events.

It remains to  see whether the U.N. will support the Serbian case to take it to the court. I gather the West is against, while Russia is in favour, making Russia just as inconsistent as the West.
