Koha Ditore reports that the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe has called on Pristina and Belgrade to start dialogue on resolving the future status of Kosovo. A resolution adopted by the Assembly says ‘such dialogue is necessary to reach a calm and acceptable solution for both parties’.
The resolution notes that the unresolved status of Kosovo affects the further destabilisation of the region, the future of European integration and economic development.
Epoka e Re reports that the CoE Parliamentary Assembly has called on all political parties in Kosovo to consider the proposal of UNMIK chief Søren Jessen-Petersen for establishing the political forum. The Assembly also called on Kosovo Serb representatives to join the work of provisional institutions and other political processes.
Zëri quotes Mariane Tritz, member of the Parliamentary Assembly, as saying, ‘Neither organised crime nor corruption should be bypassed. It is unacceptable that political parties have intelligence services and are using them to control the political life in Kosovo’.
