BELGRADE, April 11 (RIA Novosti) - The UN administration could leave Kosovo in 120 days, once the UN Security Council adopts a resolution on the Serbian Province, the head of the UN mission said Wednesday.

Joachim Rucker said in an interview with Kontakt Plus radio station in Pristina that UN special envoy Martti Ahtisaari's plan, submitted March 26, set out a transition period during which the UN would handover a significant part of their function to a future Kosovo-run administration.

He also said that he personally expected the UN Security Council to adopt a resolution on Kosovo this May.

The problem surrounding the transition period in Kosovo will be discussed Thursday at a special conference in New York, organized by the Rockefeller Foundation and attended by former U.S. President Bill Clinton.

The conference will take place in the so-called Kosovo embassy recently opened on the initiative of Albanian leaders without UN permission and which is in essence illegal.

Martti Ahtisaari, a special envoy for talks on Kosovo, presented proposals on the future status of the breakaway Serbian province, including granting it internationally supervised sovereignty, but Serbian authorities strongly oppose the plan.

Russia believes that a decision on Kosovo should satisfy both Kosovar and Serbian authorities, and that it must be reached through negotiations.
