Kosovo Serbs ask to join status talks team

[Announcer] Minority representatives in Kosova [Kosovo] have expressed their dissatisfaction with the composition of the negotiating team appointed by President Ibrahim Rugova. They underline the fact that this is an exclusively Albanian team. The head of the Serb list for Kosova, Oliver Ivanovic, has announced that he will ask the Contact Group to enable Kosovo Serbs to be a third party in the status talks.

[Reporter Xhemajl Rexha] Representatives of the minorities in Kosova feel they were outwitted following the appointment of the negotiating team for the status talks by President Ibrahim Rugova. The representative of the Serb list for Kosova, Oliver Ivanovic, told KohaVision that they have been neglected.

[Oliver Ivanovic on the phone in Serbian with Albanian voice-over] We are faced with a situation where we need to act quickly. It is clear that President Rugova and the Albanian leadership do not want the Serbs to be part of the Prishtina [Pristina] delegation. Therefore the Serbs should maintain their position and present themselves as a third party in the talks. This should include representatives of the Serb list for Kosova as well as other Kosova Serb representatives.

[Reporter] Ivanovic said that he would submit this request to the Contact Group in the hope that they would take it into consideration. Member of the Assembly presidency and the parliamentary group 6+, Xhezair Murati, supports the initiative in principal but is unhappy with the exclusion of minorities from the delegation.

[Xhezair Murati in Serbian with Albanian voice-over] We disagree with the negotiating team on status because there are no representatives of other ethnic groups who consider Kosova to be their home.

[Reporter] Their request will be submitted during the first meeting of the assembly presidency. President Rugova made public the composition of the negotiating team which he will head himself. The members of the team are Kosova Speaker Nexhat Daci, Premier Bajram Kosumi, opposition leaders Hashim Thaci from the PDK and Veton Surroi from Ora. Blerim Shala, a publicist, will be the coordinator of the working groups for status talks.

The comments coming from Serbs explain it very well why Kosova must be independent:

"it is easier to train a jackass than an albanian"

"kosovo is a cancer for serbia, infested with rats. exept for teh "educated" poulation, i mean come on dude hahah, lets not kid ourselves"

I for myself choose independence, as far as possible from these thugs. The really sad thing is these are Serbs who are able to write/speak English, and if this is the case with people who have obviously been under the influence of non-Serb ideology, then what is the case with the rest of that county? Another Holocaust in horizon? Another Crusade/Jihad?

Serbs we urge you, accept peace and live your own lives.

Why would they want to be part of the team. Belgrade team is representing them. If they want to go then the team from Belgrade should not be allowed to go. Why have two teams representing Serbs and one team representing the Albanians. If there are two teams representing Serbs then there should be a team from Albania proper representing the interests of Kkosovar Albanians.
Serbs think they're smarta$$es trying to outnumber Albanians under all kind of justifications. The Serbs in Kosova should choose. Either they let Belgrade represent them or they represent themselves.

Hmmm, the serbs in Kosova don't want to join the Assembly? They didn't take part in the votes? They refuse decentralization plans?

And now, they suddenly want to be a part of status team??!!
Kinda late for that servians. You either accept Kosova and it's institutions or you don't. Can't have it both ways...

guys please forget the serb guy. he has no idea what he is talking about. some serb guy in a coffee shop surprisingly, out of the blu, gets killed, for no reason, and guess who is to blame? KLA, which didn't even exist. please dude i know the media in serbia has filled your head with so much garbage, but some guy dying for no reason in a cafeteria, when he is not the only one that was shot upon, i mean common. anyways, guys the minority serb should have the right to be represented and i am glad they finally decided to become part of kosova's future. i just hope with all my heart that that is what they really want and are aiming for. i have to say though, raising their voice now after refusing to be part in the first place just makes me wonder if they're doing it to show that they are not being supported and recognized by the albanian majority.

As far as the Serbs wanting to join the negotiating team they do have to choose. We can't have three teams involved. It is a two side discussion so it is either the Kosovar Serbs or Belgrade. Also these negotiations are just for show because the final status has already been decided. It is just a way to prepare the Serb public for reality, something their own Government has failed to do.

arianit said...

It's very interesting this latest request of K-Serbs, have they finally realized that Belgrade won't represent their issues and rights like K-Serb minister has been saying for quite a while? Have they heard possible options that EU will offer Belgrade as long as it let's the issue go?
K-Serbs are sandwitched between the two sides and bargaining will be on their backs: not the best prospect out there.

guys the serb minority has to be represented especially in these talks. whether we like it or not there are three parties going in these talks. kosovar serbs are not just serbs, they are kosovars first and formost. like ariani said they have to look out for themselves making sure that serbia does not screw them over for some deals that might have made with nato nations (if they have done so). i have the outmost confidence that our delegation there will represent our wishes very clearly and we have to understand these talks are not for us to show to serbia why we want independence,(if they don't know that by now, you can have all the talks you want and they still won't get it) but to show them how we see the future of kosovar serbs in kosova. after all they are a serbian minority living outside serbia and the serbian government has the obligation to make sure that their rights are protected. We have to show them we better than them guys. We can't argue that they don't deserve it because deep down inside us we know that they deserve their rights. We can't make the same mistakes the serbs did.

We are not Serbs so we will not act like them. But I will tell you this, no matter how much time passes by, no matter how good we treat them, no matter how many rights and liberties they get, a Serb will never have any love for an Albanian so do not turn your back on them because you will find a knife there in no time. Serbs are an immoral and racist people. Racism is in their phsyche. They call their "religion" the "pravoslavna religija" pravo-right or correct slava-religion or faith, suggesting that theirs is the only right religion. They belive they are a people chosen by God and that all other people are inferior to them. The Serbs are the most racist people in the world today and they will never change. I will never sleap with both my eyes closed when a Serb is near by. We have gotten burned like this too many times do not make this mistake again!

Most of the non-Albanian people's of the Balkans know this to be the difinitive truth shamefully so.

It is amazing how such hatred can be turned into a mirror to reflect the truth about the "other"---in this case, the albanian accuses the serb of what the albanian is guilty...very interesting indeed.

They call their "religion" "Albanism" suggesting that their nation is above God and His laws.

You are completley missing the point of what "Albanianism" stands for. Albanianism is not a religion first of all; its what unites Albanians of every creed. It is the duty of every Albanian to leave all relgious quarrels aside and be united for the advancement of our nation.Every Albanian is free to believe whatever he/she wants. That is why we have so many religions in Albania. However every Albanian knows it is his duty to unite with his brothers of other religions because we all were born Albanians first. The religion one believes comes later in life when one is able to understand. Albanianism stands for not hating Albanians of other religions. Like for example Orthodox slavs hate muslim slavs. Albanianism stands for always helping an Albanian first no matter his/her religion rather than a foreigner who has the same religion as you. That is why we say the religion of Albanians is Albanianism. Throughout history we have had many religions starting from paganism, to Catholicism, to Orthodoxy to evangelism etc. etc. but we've never fought for religion. We put the fact that we are all born as Albanian before any religious differences. That is how we have survived Serbian colonialism among lots of other repressive regimes.

Chronology of Serbian Crimes in my family only:

1913 - 7 ouf 9 children of my grandfathers family from Prizren expelled to Turkey. Only my grandfather and his sister remained.

1950 - My grandfather, a professor of Math and Physics, expelled from Prizren to Prishtina, because he was requesting that Albanian language has to be learned in schools for albanians, and not Turkish and Serb.
A true terrorist, right?

1954 - My other grandfather, a professor of Albanian language, sent to prison for a few months, and constantly molested by the UDB for showing his sympathy and teaching Albanian students about our history.
As we see, by Serb definition, he was a true terrorist as well.

1998 - In the lunch-break in my high-school, located in the centre of Prishtina, policemen enter the school and beat-up many of our high-school students, some of them my friends

1999 - serbian police forced my entire family out of our apartment, and forced us to hed for 5 days in Bllace, were we had almost no food and water at all.

Now, my serbian friends, please tell me what have my family done to you? Or, sincerely, please make a list of things that albanians generally did to you or your family?

As you can see in the chronology above, serbs keep coming back trying to make my family leave this place. Always! I hope 1999 was the last time, since if it comes to that again, be sure you're going to have at least 300,000 mobilized and armed albanians ready to die, but just not let serbian killers return to Kosova.

If the Serbs in Kosovo are Kosovars first how can Belgrade screw them over it is the ethnic albanian governement that would screw them over in negotiations.

Trust me 1999 willn't be the last time and in the case of the 300,000 albanians ready to die I believe the UN should intervene and send 300,000 body bags.

i have a few things i want to say to the serb guy. dude your country, you included, has to change its ideology and be quick about it. i hope you speak from your twisted mind when you say and think that orthodoxy is better than islam. i am orthodox and i was raised to respect all religions. however, i consider i have more ties with my albanian fellows than with a serb, greek or russian for that matter. dude you can choose you friends but you cannot choose your family. the same goes for religion. the fact that you and me have the same religion is by choice, but having the same language, blood, customs and place to call home as my albanian people, dude that is just destiny. if our religion is the best please tell me where in the bible does it say that we should kill everyone that converts to another religion (in our case muslim) or anyone that gets married with muslims? dude do not use religion as a scape goat. i want to be proud when i say i am orthodox.
to my albanian friends. guys history has taught us that our negighbours are not friendly. however, they are our neighbors and we have to try to make things work. cautiously and carefully we have to make them understand by explaining them, showing them or even letting them be, because sooner or later they will realize why albanians have been here for thousands of years and will still be here for millions to come.

Martyr, natality is the same in Kosova along all ethnic groups. If that makes us animals, then you must conclude the same for all ethnic groups residing in Kosova, inluding Kosova Serbs.
Slovenians in their unconventional wisdom suggested to Serbs that they develop cities and industry in Kosova: two factors that greatly affect natality of a population, a change that has been noticed in all Western countries that have made the transition.
But Serbs in their ultimate fear of losing control to Kosova from a population that would be educated and in line with other worldly ideas like deomracy and self-determiatnion (which come along with rock-n-roll and birth control) choose not to.
See, if the first few decades of Serb colonialism, Albanians were not allowed to develop and natality exploded as a result. When you guys finally allowed the opening of Prishtina University and Prishtina's population boomed, it became a hub of intellecual resistance to Serb colonialism, which when coupled with villagers with hormonal imbalances kicked conlonial butt from Koshare all the way to Belgrade.

I hope I helped at all.

i have to agree with the previous guy. the reason why the population exploded is not because kosovars breed like animals but it is the lack of modernazition that the serbs inflicted on them. dude when there is nothing to do after 8 o'clock at night you go to bed and have sex with your wife. however, i do not think that is the point here. i can understand you are mad and believe me i would be mad too, but you have to know that this land belongs to god, we, as human beings, are just using it. NO one has exclusive rights to ownership. people come and go. some stay to the land some migrate again. you keep going back to the past. should we tell americans leave the states as well. the line has to be drawn somewhere. the present. kosova's serbs are trying to become part of everyday life in kosova. we should congratulate them. help them support them. whether we like it or not we are both here to stay. haven't we fought enough. dude before you know it, we'll be in EU. than what? no more borders. the only reason why kosovars wanted their independence was because you were not accepting them as equals. And do not give me that the best treated minority in the world crap. they were yugoslavian citizens who diserved the same rights as BiH, croatians, slovenians and macedonians.

Who says Kosova had a majority of Serbs in 1912. Serb sources of course. You show me a time when you had Kosova except from comunism. Serbian history has been fabricated by your church and as such is not valid at all.
Now lets go over how good it was for Kosovar Albanians during communism. How many Albanian representatives were in the federal parliament? How many Albanian ministers were in the federal government? How many Albanian colonels, generals, leutnants, majors were in the federal army? How many Albanians held directing positions in the federal institutions? The answer is NONE. Go ahead now and read why USA declared its independence from Britain. The same exact causes. What do you expect from someone who doesn't have a say whether or not to accept a tax, a law, a public official that some $hithead on Belgrade imposes on them. Why do the Kosovar Albanians have to accept this while all the other nationalities have their say in federal institutions.

Regarding the immigration you mention. It is very sad when someone has to leave his/her country because he does not have the economic resources to live there or even feed his children. This is what happened during Tito's time. I've never seen rich people immgrating because they like it. It was his policy to make the life of Albanians miserable so more and more could immigrate. This is how he envisioned to change the demographics of Kosova. The idea is the same with that of Milosevic the means are different.

My parents and I immigrated to the United States from Serbia in in the 1960's for economic reasons. We are Serbian and not albanian so don't think the albanians were the only ones who left their homes looking for work!!!!!!!As a matter of fact I believe the Serbian population in the United States is larger than the kosovo albanian population.

dick look up any map from the 10th cent on, kosovo was always serbian

Chris Blaku said...

Serbians represented less than 10% of Kosova's population prior to 1912, it was a colonization program that increased their population to a bit over 20%, and it cost Serbia almost a quarter of its budget.

Chris Blaku said...

Most maps of the Balkans, up until the mid 1990's were based on third person knowledge of the region, as almost no one visited these areas when drawing their borders on maps.

If the Serbs always belonged there, why in the world are so few of them there?

Gee, Chris get out of the stone ages. Have you heard of satellite imagery. Nobody wakes along the border to draw a map!

It is common knowledge that the Serb population was forced out by the bullying of the albanian population.
