SRSG hands over draft for political forum to Kosovan leaders

All dailies report that SRSG Søren Jessen-Petersen has handed over the draft for the political forum to Kosovan leaders. Zëri quotes UNMIK officials as saying that very soon there will be a joint meeting with the heads of institutions and leaders of political parties and the formation of the forum will be announced.

Asked about the issue, UNMIK spokesman Gyorgy Kakuk told Zëri: ‘I cannot say anything about the proposal, because it hasn’t been made public yet and it won’t be made public before it is handed over to the government and other parties involved’. Kakuk also said it was in the interest of Kosovo political parties to form the forum as soon as possible and to be prepared for talks on status.

Express reports on the front page that now it is up to the political leaders to make their comments about the political forum. The LDK and PDK, the paper says, have different views about the proposal. Express also carries an original copy of the proposal.
