Koha Ditore carries an editorial saying that it would be good if KFOR and KPS were on alert because Belgrade is orchestrating activities for political benefits at the detriment of Kosovo and that extremists are trying to bring back the situation before 1999.
The editorial provides examples. It notes that Covic said an independent Kosovo was unacceptable. This was endorsed by local Serbs in Mitrovica and Graçanica who oppose the process launched by the international community. Some journalists in Mitrovica joined the bargaining and wrote a letter to UN SG Kofi Annan ‘warning’ him on the eve of the Security Council meeting that they ‘are discriminated against and that they have no conditions for work’. Finally, it says leading Serb politicians decided to present ‘the real situation’ in Kosovo to the international community during the SC meeting in New York.
