The sensitive issue of cooperation between Serbia and the ICTY is on the agenda in a meeting on 4 October between the prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) Carla del Ponte and Serbian president Boris Tadic, accompanied by his prime minister Vojislav Kostunika. Del Ponte's arrival in Belgrade on 1 October coincides with mounting pressure from the international community for Serbia to do more in its power to hand over war criminals, including the ICTY's most wanted fugitive, Ratko Mladic.

One of the ICTY\'s most wanted suspects, Vladimir Lazarevic, who gave himself up to the Court on 28 January, is due to make his first appearance before the judges on 7 February. The former commander of the Pristina corps of the Yugoslav Army is wanted for war crimes committed during the Kosovo war (1998-1999). His decision to hand himself in, which was taken in conjunction with the Serb Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica, is the first sign from Belgrade of cooperation with the international tribunal.
