Kosovo's Trepca mine resumes work

Mitrovice [Kosovska Mitrovica], 22 August: Minister of Energy and Mines Ethem Ceku said today at the reactivation ceremony that he is confident that Trepca [mine], during these three months of experimental phase, will prove that that is economically sustainable.

He also said that Trepca would have an impact in increasing of the social welfare of Mitrovica region citizens. According to Ceku, Trepca will become self-sustainable in 2006 .

Joachim Ruecker, head of UNMIK's [UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo] Pillar IV, assessed that reactivation of Trepca indicates that Kosova [Kosovo] will be again a base of profitable mines.

"This is an important day since production in Stan Trg's [Stari Trg] mine began again, in the exploitation phase. The world market for mining products is very good at the moment. We are closely working with the government in this issue," Ruecker said.

Ken Yamashita, chief of USAID [United States Agency for International Development] mission in Kosova, said that reactivation of Trepca is a good example of what success can be achieved when having all stakeholders, the government, UN and the donors, working together.

He said that this is only the first step, while he mentioned that the Law on Mines is being processed. "We and Ruecker have many works to do for privatization, so these mines can be effective. We should attract private investors in order they to come in a secure environment," Yamashita said.

Here we go. Finally we get to exploit our own mineral wealth and not have it go to an occupier.

Soon Kosova will become the richest nation in the Balkans and we will shower those riches on all the Albanians.

Kosova, Albania, Montenegro and Macedonia, all in the EU as independent states, looks like a really bright future.

And who said the Albanians will never achieve their aim of living in the same Union with no borders?

Sincerely, Ylber USA.

TREPCA MINE BELONGS TO SERBIA.
BEFORE WW2 IT WAS OWNED AND FINANCED BY AN ENGLISH BUSINESSMAN WHO HEAVILY SUPPORTED MI6 IN WW2,THUS ANY MINERALS EXTRACTED WOULD SURELY REVERT TO EITHER THE LEGAL OWNERS (ENGLISH) OR THE SOVEREIGN STATE SERBIA WHO STILL OWN KOSSOVO, THIS NEEDS TO BE INVESTIGATED UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW.
MUCH OF THE CRIME ACROSS WESTERN EUROPE HAS BEEN ORCHESTRATED BY ALBANIANS INCLUDING THOSE WHO HAVE TAKEN OVER AREAS OF ITALY FROM MAFIA, BY FORCE, CREATED DRUG RUNNING LINES, GUN TRAFICKERS, SLAVE AND PROSTITUTION LINES RIGHT ACROSS TO UK. THESE PEOPLE WERE SUPPORTED BY BLAIR AND US GOVERNMENTS, YET WERE A KNOWN AND PROSCRIBED TERRORIST ORGANISATION, SO MUCH FOR BUSH AND BLAIRS WAR ON TERRORISM, THEY AID THE TERRORIST KLA UCK AND OFFSPRING GOVERNMENT TO STEAL PART OF SOVEREIGN SERBIA. WOULD ANY OTHER NATION IN EUROPE ACCEPT PART OF ITS HISTORICAL TERRITORY BEING STOLEN IN THIS WAY. THIS IS NOT DEMOCRATICE, LEGAL OR JUST IN ANY WAY.

Albanians, I am sorry that you don't have history in kosovo and no memory and that you feel so miserably in front of other nations and you want to look like "modern one" - how can one think that can unify those territories without another war this time maybe the third one?
