China and Russia, obstacles to Kosovo’s international telephone code

Koha Ditore reports that the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) has turned down UNMIK’s request for an international telephone code for Kosovo with the excuse that the international administration “doesn’t exercise the sovereign right over Kosovo”.

An official of the UNMIK Legal Office, who preferred to remain anonymous, told the newspaper that Belgrade lobbied at the Russian and Chinese embassies in order to prevent Kosovo from getting an international telephone code.

The official also gave Koha Ditore background information on the correspondence between the ITU and UNMIK on the matter. SRSG Søren Jessen-Petersen according to the source has said he will ask UNSG Kofi Annan to resolve the issue. In fact, the SRSG reportedly presented the issue to Annan and the latter promised him a quick resolution. “The Secretary General has taken over this issue. He has taken the initiative and I support him. We are now waiting for a response from the ITU, which we hope will be positive,” the UNMIK chief told Koha Ditore.

Freakin'chinese... It was an Albanian sponsored resolution that got them the U.N. seat and now they become an obstacle for something so simple...

How quickly do we forget...

From the 1960s onwards, nations friendly to the PRC, led by Albania, moved an annual resolution in the General Assembly to transfer China's seat at the UN from the ROC to the PRC. Every year the United States was able to assemble a majority of votes to block this resolution. But the admission of newly independent developing nations in the 1960s gradually turned the General Assembly from being Western-dominated to being dominated by countries sympathetic to Beijing. In addition, the desire of the Nixon administration to improve relations with Beijing to counterbalance the Soviet Union reduced American willingness to support the ROC.

As a result of these trends, on October 25, 1971, Resolution 2758 (Albania was the lead sponsor of the draft resolution) was passed by the General Assembly, withdrawing recognition of the ROC as the legitimate government of China, and recognising the PRC as the sole legitimate government of China.

Following five years of United Nations control and billions of dollars of international aid, Kosovo is a lawless region "owned" by the Albanian mafia, characterized by continuing ethnic cleansing and subject to increasing infiltration by al Qaeda-linked Muslim jihadists, according to a whistleblower interviewed by Cybercast News Service.

The U.N.'s repeated failure to act on received intelligence has allowed illegal paramilitary groups to flourish and engage in terrorist attacks aimed at destabilizing regional governments in the Balkans, said Thomas Gambill, a former security chief with the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), self-described as the world's largest regional security agency.

Jane Defense Weekly confirms in this regard that "half of Taliban manpower and equipment originate[d] in Pakistan under the ISI" 18

In fact, it would appear that following the Soviet withdrawal both sides in the Afghan civil war continued to receive covert support through Pakistan's ISI. 19

In other words, backed by Pakistan's military intelligence (ISI) which in turn was controlled by the CIA, the Taliban Islamic State was largely serving American geopolitical interests. The Golden Crescent drug trade was also being used to finance and equip the Bosnian Muslim Army (starting in the early 1990s) and the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA). In last few months there is evidence that Mujahideen mercenaries are fighting in the ranks of KLA-NLA terrorists in their assaults into Macedonia.

IN MEMORIAM
Dedicated to all victims of terrorism, including a member of The Centre for Peace in the Balkans who is still listed as missing in the World Trade Centre bombing.

In testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee on February 2, 1999, CIA Director George Tenet warned of the worldwide threat posed by the Bin Laden network:

"There is not the slightest doubt that Osama Bin Laden, his worldwide allies, and his sympathizers are planning further attacks against us. Despite progress against his networks, Bin Laden´s organization has contacts virtually worldwide, including in the United States. And he has stated unequivocally that all Americans are targets. Bin Laden´s overreaching aim is to get the United States out of the Persian Gulf, but he will strike wherever in the world he thinks we are vulnerable. We are anticipating bombing attempts with conventional explosives, but his operatives are also capable of kidnappings and assassinations. We have noted recent activities similar to what occurred prior to the African embassy bombings, Mr. Chairman, and I must tell you that we are concerned that one or more of Bin Laden´s attacks could occur at any time."

According to the September 15, 2001 issue of the New York Times (U.S. Demands Arab Countries ´Choose Sides´ by Jane Perlez) the United States has issued a communiqué to its embassies around the world "…listing the conditions that nations were expected to meet in order to qualify for membership in the anti-terror coalition." Considering that the US supports countries where many terrorists originate or are trained (Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Albania), we are concerned about the fallout should those countries fail to meet the stated US demands.

Hey dude this is an article written by Michel Chossudovsky 4:40. And there is no source on the paragraph, it is simply an opinion. Chossodovsky sounds Slavic, helping brothers, by creating propaganda.

Dude, you're quoting Tenet.

If Tenet knew where terrorists were, he would bomb Serbia again.

No wonder he was forced to resign since:

1. He was Albanian who thought that he was Greek and wanted to show Greeks how much he hates Albania.

2. He was stupid.

3. He found no "nucular" weapons.

Please dont argue with those albanians. Everything is Serbian propaganda, Serb secret police shot the serbs in south Kosovo etc etc. Dont you realize how stupid and misguided they are.
They want to join the EU, they think US is backing them, there are american flags all over Kosovo even if US doesn´t give a shit about them.
They think that Kosovo will be independent.
Almost every country in the world have problems with them and are sending them back sa we speek. (Yesterday a family fom Scotland).
Please just ignore them. They have no heroes and therefore they try to hold on to someone (US).
I hope that UN and Kfor will leave soon so they can "build their own country" on criminality. At the same time, maybe it would be worth a try to buil a huge wall around Kosovo and let them rule inside there because the only things they are good at, is making trouble.

I guess Kosova can count on Albania for a U.N. seat.

Or screw it, we're so sick and tired of the UN(MIK) bureaucracy anyway, they can take their UN seat and shove it up their commie asses.

Oh, your heroes that in 1998/99, too scared to enter the mountains and fight, would kidnap and kill families of the KLA soldiers.

That's the kinds of heroes you're talking about? Tell your "heroes" to pick on your size.

Why majority of the missing from the Kosovo war are civilians? Because your "heroes" were good at killing unarmed people.

Tell your "heroes" to dare and enter Kosova now (without UN protection) motherfucker.

You misunderstood me. Im not saying Serbia has any heroes either. (And please, Im absolutely not from Balkans even if you think that everybody that critisize Kosovo or Kosovars are from Serbia.) They have several war criminals that will face justice. Just like Kosovo albanians will in the future.
And I agree with you that it is not very heroic to kill civilians. That goes for all !
The rest of my blogg is true, whether you like it or not.

Don't complain about freakin'chinese. Write to the ITU. I already did.

http://www.itu.int/home/feedback/index.phtml ITU

Don't let some sad ITU members overrule the UN. Morover, their argument is very weak. If Kosova had sovereignity, there wouldn't be any need for the UN to ask for a temporary code. ITU is issuing the code to the UN, not Kosova, then the UN does whatever it wants with it, hopefully let Kosova use it until indepdence for free. After status decision, it can give it to Kosova forever or keep it for other similar needs and Kosova asks for a new one. On the other hand, I wonder if Monaco has soveregnity over Kosova that it let it use its own code for mobile calls - for a couple of million E fee, of course.

P.S.
I'm sick of international organizations. Every day George W. Bush's decisions to ignore such marketplace organizations makes more sense to me.

I think that, Kosovo Albanians must disconnect from the Serbian-Montenegrin telephone code, and connect to the telephone code of Albania. It's better.

I think Serbia and Montenegro should get another country code like the devilish 666. Kosova should keep the 381 code.

If indeed this is true, it is simply evidence of how some nations do not support the breaking up of another sovereign nation, especially due to a terrorist movement. It sets terrible precedence in this post 9/11 world.

Sep 29, 2005 — BELGRADE (Reuters) - United Nations war crimes tribunal chief prosecutor Carla del Ponte said on Thursday she was very pleased Serbia had now established cooperation with The Hague tribunal — a key element in its bid for eventual European Union membership.

"We are very pleased with the cooperation we received from Belgrade," del Ponte told reporters after talks with Serbian leaders. "Finally we can say we have a reciprocal cooperation between The Hague and Belgrade."

Well, do it before you lose Sandjak and Vojvodina :-)

More Serbian wishful thinking... It takes more than bowing down to DelPonte and giving head to Anan to realize your dreams.

Kosovo is lost for Serbia. In fact, it was never theirs (except when it was occupied in 1912-1999).

Serbia is still collectively recovering from the fact that they were outsmarted by Kosovo Albanians in 1999. Now they are trying to copy them.

The UN's chief war crimes prosecutor has expressed disappointment at the level of Croatia's co-operation with The Hague war crimes tribunal.

Since the Albanians are such humanitarians why not the outcry of the lack of support the Croatian governement has given the Hague war crimes tribunal. Croatia has war criminals walking free from justice.

According to the information that I read the ethnic albanians (KLA) took up arms to fight for independence and were losing badly until the US and NATO got involved. I think the western intervention screwed up the natural order of the region and needs to slowly reestablish that order the way it was. Otherwise this cycle of violence in order to achieve independence is just getting started.

Albanians weren't oppressed by the Croatians. We got problems with Serbia we don't need more problems.
We leave the outcry to the Serbs, you got problems with the Croats not us. But then again after starting wars with half of the Balkans and killing children everywhere Serbs have problems with everyone.

Not long to go before the albanians realise that they have been sold out. Having been an officer in the Royal Anglian Regiment based in Kosovo, the signs have been seen that a deal has been struck with the serbian army. The increased communications between ourselves and the JNA on KPC whereabouts is further evidence to the destruction of a greater albania.
