Text of report in English by independent internet news agency KosovaLive

Prishtina [Pristina], 19 April: The government has not discussed even today during the regular meting the draft report on line-by-line assessment of Standards fulfilment.

Prime Minister Bajram Kosumi said today that the signals coming form those who assessed the standards are positive. But Kosumi added that it has remained the report to be analysed in details and supplemented with government comments.

"According to the work made, we expect it to be reflected and thus have a positive evaluation," he said.

He did not specify if the government has the draft report in its hands. But Deputy Adem Salihaj said yesterday that the government has received the draft report.

Meanwhile the spokesperson for the government, Daut Dauti, said that this report has not arrived yet. "The government has not yet received it, although it has learned that it was positively evaluated," he said.

Dauti said that all information for this report will be made known in the coming days.

But the sources within KosovaLive said that UNMIK [UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo] has submitted the document on Monday [18 April] and it is being reviewed by the Contact Group, as well.
