The status of Kosovo, turbulence in the Middle East, piracy off the coast of Somalia and peacekeeping were among the major areas to be considered by the Security Council during the Russian Federation's presidency in August, Vitaly Churkin, that country's Permanent Representative, said at a Headquarters press conference today.

Mr. Churkin said the Council, at Lebanon's request, held a private meeting today to discuss the exchange of fire between Israel and Lebanon earlier in the day along the so-called Blue Line separating the two countries.
