Text of report by Kosovo Albanian television KohaVision TV on 17 May
[Announcer] Kosova [Kosovo] Prime Minister Bajram Kosumi accepted late this afternoon the invitation of his Serbian counterpart Vojislav Kostunica for a meeting on 25 May in Prizren, government spokesperson Daut Dauti has told KohaVision. He added that the time and venue of the meeting would be decided by both parties and that it cannot be decided by Belgrade.
We will respond to the invitation positively. We are drafting a response which we will also distribute to the media, Dauti said over the phone. The prime minister is ready to talk about problems both sides are facing, since Kosova wants goodneighbourly relations in the region, he said.
The government spokesperson said that Prime Minister Kosumi thought that in all events where Kosova and Serbia were present we needed an international presence as well.
According to Dauti, Kostunica's invitation to Kosumi states that in a possible meeting they would discuss Kosova's problems. Spokesperson Dauti described this as this tendentious since, according to him, with this Belgrade was implying that Kosova was its territory.
