Why is there no other solution than start of status resolution in autumn

Zëri reports on the front page that the possibility of a negative report by Ambassador Kai Eide has become a source of major concerns among the international actors, namely the Contact Group countries.

The paper notes that Western centres expect progress to be achieved in decentralisation and standards implementation that would enable the Norwegian diplomat to give a positive note.

Western sources told the paper that diplomatic centres have major concerns regarding the consequences of a negative evaluation by Eide because the West doesn’t have a “Plan B” that could be applied in case status talks would be postponed.
