Text of report by Belgrade-based Radio B92 on 19 April
[Announcer] The leader of the Social Democratic Party [SDP] and chairman of the Coordination Centre for Kosovo-Metohija, Nebojsa Covic, has said that one of the conditions for his party remaining in the Serbian government is a clear position that there will be no giving up Kosovo-Metohija for the sake of European integration. According to Covic, the independence of the province will be a prelude not to the creation of a greater Albania, but rather a greater Kosovo.
[Covic] The price of our European integration cannot and must not be Kosovo-Metohija. Let us find a solution according to European integration, according to international norms, and also according to the preservation of the integrity and sovereignty of a country with due regard for the real situation in Kosovo-Metohija where the Albanians are an absolute majority.
