PRISTINA, April 20 (Hina) - Commenting on Serbian President Boris Tadic's invitation for talks, Kosovo President Ibrahim Rugova on Wednesday again stated he could not take part in direct talks with Belgrade.
Rugova said the best solution would be to hold an international meeting that would be attended by the presidents of all countries in the region. "I do not want to do anything without the international community which is here, and direct political talks with Belgrade are very difficult and impossible to conduct," Rugova said after meeting a delegation of NATO's Parliamentary Assembly visiting Kosovo.
At the meeting, Rugova reiterated his position seeking independence for the province.
Earlier today, the EU urged the leader of Kosovo Albanians to open a dialogue with Serbia on the future of the UN-governed province.
