“Kosovo Albanian unindicted war criminal believes UN will grant independence
January 25, 2007 11:55 AM
PRISTINA, Serbia-Kosovo’s Prime Minister Agim Ceku said Thursday he believes the U.N. proposal outlining the province’s future status will propose independence for Kosovo.
Chief U.N. envoy Martti Ahtisaari plans to disclose recommendations on Kosovo’s future to Western governments and Russia on Friday. He will then make his offer known to ethnic Albanians and Serbs a week later, on Feb. 2, during a visit to Serbia’s capital Belgrade and the provincial capital Pristina.
Ahtisaari has shared the proposal with U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon during a meeting in Paris, his office said.
“I strongly believe that Ahtisaari will propose independence for Kosovo and will propose a concrete mechanism and procedures to guarantee all the rights of the communities that live in Kosovo,” Ceku said.
“After his proposal the minorities, namely Serbs, will have no reason to refuse Kosovo’s independence or to refuse to live in an independent Kosovo,” he added.
Kosovo’s ethnic Albanian majority is pushing for independence from Serbia, while Serbian leaders and the Serb minority in the province want it to remain within Serbia’s borders. The province has been under U.N. control since mid-1999 and is currently patrolled by a 16,000-strong NATO-led peacekeeping force…”
