Second of all, as far as our relationship with Greece, we are partners, we are allies, we work together in many, many important areas and we look forward to having the chance to discuss those with Greek leaders tomorrow.
Q On Albania -- on Kosovo, excuse me. The Undersecretary Nicholas Burns testifying in Congress yesterday for Kosovo, stated inter alia, quote, "All the local structure must be accountable to Pristina, not to Belgrade. Belgrade-funded institutions, most notably Mitrovica, must be dismantled or integrated into Kosovo's structures," unquote.
I am wondering if that means behind the scenes yes, U.S.
policy is moving towards full indepence of Kosovo.
MR. BOUCHER: U.S. policy is exactly where Undersecretary Burns put it yesterday, and that is the way I put it, I think the day before, that there is a review this summer, and then we look forward after that to addressing the final status issues, if that turns out to be the appropriate next step.
Q One more question. Since in the case of Kosovo indepence, according to a lot of political observers, will be a wave a Albanian refugees towards western Balkans, do you have contingency plans to prevent such a development due to the point that Undersecretary Nicholas Burns stated yesterday that the 18,000 American soldiers will remain in Kosovo for unlimited period of time?
MR. BOUCHER: You're -- you're -- (laughs) -- you're way out there on that one. You're just projecting things into some future that may or may not happen. You're predicting disaster from a step that -- from the process that we're taking and predicting the outcome of the process we're taking. That's a hypothetical, and a hypothetical on a hypothetical on a worst case scenario. So I'm not going to bother with it, I'm sorry.
