The UN Security Council has welcomed the arrest of war crimes suspect Ratko Mladic and Serbia's plan to send him to The Hague to face genocide charges.

The Council has congratulated Serbian authorities on the arrest. It also expressed sympathy for those who suffered in the former Yugoslavia during the 1990s conflict. The council says it hopes the detention and transfer of Mladic will help bring the region closer to reconciliation. Mladic was arrested Thursday in a Serbian village.

A Belgrade court ruled on Friday that he's fit enough to be tried despite his son saying he appeared too frail after 15 years on the run. Mladic faces charges of massacre and for the siege of Sarajevo.
