Koha Ditore reports on the front page that President Ibrahim Rugova and Prime Minister Bajram Kosumi will not accept a meeting with Serbian President Tadic as a condition for Kosovo Serbs to join Kosovo institutions.
Citing reliable sources, the paper claims that Kosovo Serbs will condition their participation in institutions with a meeting between Rugova, Kosumi and Tadic.
‘I don’t change my stance. My position is that in case of an international meeting on Kosovo, the Serbian side and other neighboring countries can attend this meeting, but they will not have the right of veto,’ Rugova was quoted as saying.
‘Kosovo Serbs don’t need and have no reason to condition their participation in Kosovo institutions. They are citizens of Kosovo and they must be part of these institutions,’ Rugova added.
Koha Ditore quotes unnamed sources as saying that even the government has refused a meeting with Tadic. ‘The Prime Minister has said that he won’t meet Tadic,’ said the sources.
