Burns: Time for Kosovo has come

Zëri reports on the front page that US Under-Secretary Nicholas Burns has once again reiterated the commitment of his government to settle the issue of Kosovo’s status within a short period of time.

‘We believe 2005 will be a crucial year for Kosovo, a year that when the aspirations of the people of Kosovo will be fulfilled,’ Burns was quoted as saying in a NATO summit in Are, Sweden. ‘Negotiations for Kosovo will be difficult but we think the time has come.’

Express, which also covers the summit in Sweden, quotes Burns as saying that next week UNSG Kofi Annan will appoint Kai Eide to assess standards in Kosovo.
