Serbia's parliament will meet next week to debate the International Court of Justice's (ICJ) July 22 ruling that Kosovo's unilateral declaration of independence from Serbia in 2008 was not in violation of international law.

The extraordinary session of the 250-seat body is scheduled for July 26.

The ICJ's nonbinding decision was hailed in Pristina, while politicians in Belgrade vowed to never recognize Kosovo's independence.

Serbia has said it will pursue its fight to reopen negotiations on the status of Kosovo at the forthcoming UN General Assembly.
