International Laws forbid independence for Kosovo
& protect Serbia's territorial integrity and sovereignty.
Article 2 of the United Nations Charter includes territorial integrity as one of the principles that prohibits the threat or use of force in the resolution of international disputes.
Territorial integrity is included in the Declaration of Principles of International Law concerning friendly relations among states.
The United Nations Charter regards it as one of the paramount elements included in the concept of sovereign equality.
The Helsinki Final Act of 1975 reinforced the principle of territorial integrity and went further by including a section on the inviolability of frontiers.
It is hoped that members of the Contact Group and the UN Special Envoy are familiar with the wording of these two sections of the Act.
