The Russian and Serbian foreign ministers on Wednesday signed a series of documents, including a joint strategic declaration.

"We agreed to draft a new set of agreements ahead of the next meeting of our presidents next year. We also agreed that we will suggest that the presidents sign a declaration on a strategic partnership," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

Lavrov also said that Russia was "seriously concerned" following allegations of human organs, weapons and drug trafficking against Kosovo Prime Minister Hashim Thaci in a 27-page report of the Council of Europe.

"We should seek its broadest possible distribution," Lavrov said.

Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic said he was not going to meet with Thaci.

Kosovo, a breakaway province of Serbia, unilaterally proclaimed independence in February 2008. Russia supported Belgrade in its refusal to recognize Kosovo's independence.
