Hungary calls for more substantial EU role in Kosovo talks

Hungary has offered Budapest as a venue for international talks on the future status of Kosovo. This has been announced by Hungarian Foreign Minister Ferenc Somogyi at the EU foreign ministers' meeting in Luxembourg.

He stressed that the EU's role was essential for Kosovo's operation in any form, therefore the EU should make its participation more substantial.

The province, which is currently under UN administration, demands full independence, while the Belgrade leadership considers Kosovo to be part of Serbia, and it says that it can get independence only within Serbia.
