SRSG Søren Jessen-Petersen : "I welcome the resumption today of direct
talks between Pristina and Belgrade on the fate of the missing persons,
which is an issue of deep humanitarian concern."
"This process is, above all, about the families of persons unaccounted for
and every single day these families pass without answers only increases
their suffering. I trust that the delegations will conduct the dialogue in
a constructive manner and in a way that focuses fully on the humanitarian
perspective. The key goal of this working group should be the facilitation
and provision of concrete answers to the families of the missing."
"I am grateful to the International Committee of the Red Cross for chairing
this dialogue and I look forward to further meetings of the working group
so that we can make real progress as quickly as possible."
