Ahtisaari and CG to meet on 16 January in Vienna and 31 January in London (Zëri)

Zëri carries an editorial as lead story on the front page and quotes Western diplomatic sources in Pristina as saying that the second half of January will be characterized by very dynamic work by Ahtisaari and his team.

It has been known since his arrival that January will be an important month for the process of solving Kosovo’s status. It seems that the key word of the Contact Group and Ahtisaari’s preoccupation is decentralization. And it is one of the issues that the Kosovo side is going to draft its offer.

Above all, says the article, on 16 January another meeting between the Contact Group and Martti Ahtisaari at the level of political directors is expected to take place in Vienna, to be followed by a meeting in London on 31 January at the level of diplomatic chiefs of the Contact Group member states.

In the meeting in Vienna Ahtisaari and the Contact Group representatives are expected to talk abut the initial materials prepared for the concrete issues and for bringing again face to face the local government ministers of Kosovo and Serbia, Lutfi Haziri and Zoran Loncar. This latter meeting expected to take place on 23rd of January.

It is known, says the article further, that the effort to meet these ministers in December did not succeed, because among other things, it was not properly explained as to who was supposed to be the host of the meeting: UNMIK with the Government of Austria, or Ahtisaari as UN envoy for Kosovo status. Now it is known that since decentralization has entered the package of talks, at least from the international perspective, Ahtisaari is the supreme authority.

The Albanians expect to obtain the independence of Kosovo and fulfill the dream about greater Albania through blood and drug money, I don't think so. All the corrupt politicians they have bought with the money from the drugs that kill young people throughout Europe and America will have to answer some questions sooner or later. This is something to think about for the so called "specialists" helping them out.(Janusz Bugajski, Frank Carlucci ,Robert Carr, Fred F. Fielding,Lt. General Robert Gard,Bobby Muller,William Ryerson etc.)I ask one question, what will happen with all drug factories, human slavery chains and gun running when Kosovo "becomes
independent"? They won't just go away.
There are almost no other nationalities left except Albanians in "Kosova", and those who's stayed live in constant fear, closed in enclaves. Kosovo is already a big European problem, and it seems that almost all the "specialists" that are helping them in creating something that threatens to become a source of conflicts for decades to come, are Americans. What does that tell you, my European friends...?

Since when are you concerned about ethnic diversity? Last time I checked Serbs almost successfuly cleaned up Bosnia of both Croats and Bosniacs and then did the same in Dardania/Kosova.

Oh and regarding the drug money...you make it look like all Albanians deal drugs...so I guess this is what you imagine:

School starts in the Elementary School in Prishtina. Teacher walks in and says "children, today we will learn how to deal amphetamines. who can tell me what they are..."

If that is the case...this is how Serb schools are like:

School starts in Elementary School in Belgrade. Teacher walks in and says "children, today we will discuss methods of rape. who's father here has not done that yet? oh little Ivica, your dady is still a virgin."

Etc...get my point?
