Serbs, Ethnic Albanians In Kosovo Talks Apr 3, 2006
VIENNA, April 3 (UPI) -- Serbian negotiators say they are dissatisfied with a U.N. decentralization document regarding talks with ethnic Albanians on Kosovo.
The document, based on the first two rounds of the Vienna talks, was prepared by a team of U.N. Kosovo Envoy Marti Ahtisaari, who is leading talks on the final status of the U.N.-administered Kosovo province.
Shortly before the third round of talks, Serbian negotiators told Ahtisaari the decentralization document was not enough in harmony with the previous two rounds of the talks.
"The document included some issues which have not been discussed at all," said Aleksandar Simic, an adviser to Serbia's prime minister.
Kosovo, whose population is 90 percent ethnic Albanian, has been under U.N. administration since 1999, when NATO airstrikes forced the withdrawal of the police and military troops of the late Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic.
The current talks are to determine who will govern Kosovo once the U.N. civilian mission and NATO forces leave the province.
The ethnic Albanians expect the talks will result in independence for them.
Fixed some glaring omissions there.
Just like raw sewage rushing in to fill up a hole in the road after a swer main breaks. Illegals could ALL be described that way!!
It is truly a pity that some people in this nation do not realize that the past ten years in Kosovo will be replayed over the next ten years here, in what some call Aztlan.
Yep, you are so right.
