Dobbins: US will not accept solutions against the will of majority

Papers quote former US envoy for the Balkans James Dobbins as saying that the US would not accept a solution for Kosovo that would not match the will of the majority. ‘Any option that is not supported by majority of Kosovans is not supported by the US either’, said Dobbins in an interview for Radio Free Europe. He reaffirmed that decision on Kosovo status will be taken by UN SC despite different views Russia China will have.

Mr.Dobbins agreed with the fact that the talks on the final status solution for Kosovo would start in autumn and that the final solution would be decided by UN SC, adding that this should not be difficult, although Russia and China will have different views. James Dobbins said: “We hope that all the parties involved will achieve an agreement. But the lack of talks will not block the resolution on the final status”. Koha Ditore quotes Mr. Dobbins as saying it is very important that minorities in Kosovo live in peace and prosperity, since any final solution will have to include special arrangements to protect the minorities, notably the Serbs. Asked whether this would mean an inevitable independence of Kosovo, Dobbins answered: “This would mean independence under fulfilment of the conditions which I mentioned”.

According to the paper, Mr. Dobbins said that the recent statement made by Minister of Foreign Affairs of Serbia-Montenegro Vuk Drashkovic in connection with the solution of Kosovo status issue and of the Serb republic in Bosnia is an irresponsible statement. It is not in the interest of Serbia itself to destabilize Bosnia or any other neighbouring country, added Mr Robbins. “On the contrary, the interest for Serbia Montenegro lies in a calm and democratic Bosnia heading towards EU membership and having a good relationship with Serbia. If someone wishes to change the right on self-determination, without consideration of any other issues, then the Serbian territory itself could be divided”.

These Americans, democrats and neocons (USA & Israël) What are they doing in the Balkans with the British caniche? Do you think they help tribes for democracy and freedom? No.
They support Albanians as they support Kurds against orthodox slaves and against muslims and arabs to divide Europe, Eurasia and the arabic world.

First poster, what does Israel have to do with this? I'll answer for you--not a thing. A little more of that always present Serb anti-Semitism coming out again.

This guy is a stright shooter. No more BS. The coffee has been brewing since Rambouilled yet some people didn't want to smell it and in turn more blood had to be shed.

Amazing, this guy just breeched all partisan lines and united every aspect of political opinion in America. The Democrats and the neocons, who you claim Israel is a part of, to divide the "superpowers" of Iraq and Serbia.

Do you know the definition of a neoconservative or did you just read it somewhere and decide to throw it against the wall and see if it would stick?
