The European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana on Friday expressed regret for the violence in Serbia in which the U.S. embassy was stormed.

"I don't think these acts of violence lead anywhere," Solana said prior to the second-day meeting of the EU defense ministers held at Brdo pri Kranju in Slovenia.

He said the violence in Serbia should be condemned as Serbian authorities are obliged to protect foreign embassies in its territory, the Slovenian Press Agency reported.

Slovenian Defense Minister Karl Erjavec hoped the situation will calm down, adding "the Serbian authorities are responsible for calming things down."

On Thursday evening, rioters attacked embassies of the United States and several other countries during a mass rally in the Serbian capital of Belgrade to protest against Kosovo's independence.

They broke into the U.S. embassy and set fire. Several other countries' embassies were also stoned.

Protests, some turned into riots, erupted all over Serbia and the north of Kosovo following Sunday's unilateral declaration of independence of Kosovo.
