Kostunica and Tadic to co-chair Serbian negotiations team (Zëri)

Quoting a report from Belgrade’s B92, Zëri writes that the Serbian Government has appointed members for its negotiations team on Kosovo and that the Serbian President and Prime Minister will jointly lead the team. The paper notes that all political parties represented in the Serbian Parliament have been given the right to have a seat in the team but the representation of Kosovo Serbs is not yet clear. In a separate piece, Zëri reports, quoting Podgorica daily Dan, that former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger may be appointed as advisor to the Serbian team.

To me, this sounds like they could not agree which one to chair the team, so the compromise was to be co-chairs.

However, the question is: does that also mean that when they finally loose Kosova for good, they will share the burden of responsibility and go down in history as the leaders who lost Kosova?

Kissinger sold out the South Vietnamese. Do you want him on your team :)

Arianit,

Maybe that is the whole point. This has to be blamed on someone!

it is rather obvious what will happen; those of you who think that any serb can possibly give up kosovo openly are sowrong! serbs will pretend to be negotiating and obstruct the process the whole time. their goal is to make the international community IMPOSE a solution i.e. future (not to be mistaken for final) status! serbs know very well, or shall I say, knew very well for a long time that any democratic solution to kosovo conflict will result in losing kosovo - be it de facto or de jure. they know that ANY solution is a loss for serbs so why sign something and risk your credibility and even your life? they'd be happy with anything that they do not have to justify in front of serbian people - imposed status is a gift from gods for ANY negotiator... I guess all I was trying to say is that it really does not matter who is on the negotiating team - the outcome will not depend on negotiating parties on either side. feel free to quote me on this :)

@visit prishtina:
your webpage looks great, but all of the links lead to the same page. i assume you're still in the process of building it. i think there is a lot of potential there and wanted to talk to you about writing contributions (i travel to and through kosova at least twice a year). however, your webpage offers no options for contact...

the negotiations will take years. during that time period,albanians will attack minorities in kosovo. this will result in a crack down by the internationals and a suspension of governance by albanians. you can quote me on this.

The negotiations will conclude in 2006, and Serbia will be left with an imposed solution, the only one it can offer to its people, who will rush to play victim, as they do best.
