EU to strengthen its role Kosovo status has been solved

The paper says that EU High Representative Javier Solana and EU Commissioner for Enlargement Olli Rehn in a report say that after UN SCR 1244 is superseded in Kosovo, the international civilian presence will be shaped in the way of an international office where EU would be an important component but that it will not be a EUMIK. The report, notes Koha, will be presented to EU Foreign Ministers today.

Express is in possession of the report The Future EU Role and Contribution in Kosovo and stresses that after status of Kosovo is resolved, there will be a EU presence that would control justice, police and foreign policy. ‘This is what independence would look like’, writes the paper.

This actualy makes sense, its the only way to stop Serbs from trying something stupid, like let's say start another war, which would result in half of Serbia again answering for war crimes. Serbs are truly lucky, Europe looks after them, so do Turks, Russians and Chinese...

Yeah ! I have told over and over again. Kosovo will be free but NEVER an independent country or state. Well, maybe in the future as one US diplomat told me at Bondsteel, "maybe in four or five decades if everything goes smoothly".

First of all please indicate your names when posting...

Second, YES this is a joke. The EU would control foreign policy when they fail to form a constitution among their member nations? I think the mismanagement and bias of Europe is apparent in this part of the world by now... Do not let this facade fool you, the United States will take the lead in this, and independence is no farther than a decade.

The US diplomat at Bondsteel that told you that is a pencil pushing suit who answers to the decision makers. Anything less than full independence within a decade will lead to a massive Balkan war, where America's Camp Bondsteel will be put in a defensive position. With the problems in Iraq and Afghanistan, that is the last thing the US desires with its largest international base.

Moreover, return to Serbia (a hostile state) is a no-no. The US will not allow its largest international base to lie within hostile borders, hasn't happened since Vietnam.

You are much too pessimistic my friend, don't allow the day-to-day comments of useless diplomats like Solana tell you where the Balkans are going. The US calls the shots, as they have always done. Conditional independence is likely, however, full fledged independence will be realized before 2015, with EU integration shortly thereafter. Expect border disintegration and very strong cooperation with Albania, creating a state with an artificial border, which is what has always been there.
