The first meeting of Kosovo's troika will take place in Belgrade on Friday, the Russian representative to the Contact Group on Kosovo said on Wednesday.

"This will be the troika's first visit to Serbia. Representatives of Russia, the United States and the European Union will hold talks in Pristina on Aug. 11-12," Alexander Botsan-Kharchenko was quoted by the Itar-Tass news agency as saying.

Botsan-Kharchenko will on Thursday take part in the Contact Group's session in London that "will focus on the upcoming talks between Belgrade and Pristina on Kosovo's status," the report said.

"We hope for substantial talks on measures to contribute to and organize this process, and ways to reach a decision, which may only be taken at the UN Security Council," the diplomat said.

According to Serbian media reports, the EU will be represented by German diplomat Wolfgang Ischinger, and the United States by Ambassador Frank G. Wisner.
