Four new options on the road toward negotiations (Koha Ditore)
Koha Ditore reports on the front page that Kosovo President Ibrahim Rugova could have new problems with the functioning of the Negotiating Team. The paper quotes unnamed sources as saying that Prime Minister Kosumi in meetings with international officials and in the government meeting has pre-announced that the government would form working groups on Kosovo’s status. However, this was denied by PM’s advisor Avni Arifi.Koha also says that in the next meeting of the Negotiating Team, which is expected to take place next week, there will be four proposals by Opposition leaders Hashim Thaçi and Veton Surroi. The PDK leader will call for the enlargement of the group and ask that the working groups have three coordinators. Surroi on the other hand will ask that the deputy leaders of the four main political parties form a political group within the Negotiating Team. He will also call for the creation of the advisory committee for minorities through which the interests of minorities would be integrated in the negotiating process.
