The United States is urging the Serbian government to help protect the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said Thursday.

"We are in contact with the Serbian government to ensure that they devote the appropriate assets to fulfill their international obligations to help protect diplomatic facilities, in this case our embassy," McCormack said.

"They have been up until this point very good in providing police assets to ensure that the embassy facility was protected. We want to strongly urge them and we are in contact with them to make sure that they devote the assets to deal with this situation," McCormack said.

According to media reports, some protesters broke into U.S. embassy in Belgrade and set fire on some offices. The riot police came later, arrested some protesters and drove the rest away.

Serbia has condemned U.S. recognition of the independence of Kosovo, a former province of Serbia.
