Kazakhstan has thus enabled Serbia to protect its cultural heritage in Kosovo-Metohija, President Nikolic said, appealing to Serbia's friends for support on the matter in case Kosovo's UNESCO membership bid is renewed next year.

There are growing security risks and religious extremism in Kosovo-Metohija, with ethnic Albanians taking part in terrorist acts in crisis regions around the world, President Nikolic warned.

He also said Serbia and Kazakhstan had major prospects for economic cooperation.
