Text of report by Radio-Television Kosovo TV on 13 January
[Announcer] One of the prime issues in talks on Kosova's [Kosovo's] status is going to be missing persons issues, says member of the Kosova negotiation team Veton Surroi. He met the chairman of the government committee for the missing.
[Reporter] Shedding light on missing persons has to be discussed with the UN special envoy and deputy envoy for Kosova status talks, Martti Ahtisaari and Albert Rohan, which is expected to take place in the coming weeks.
[Veton Surroi] Kosova status belongs to family members and all those missing who sacrificed their lives so Kosova can be independent. I have raised this issue with the Kosova negotiation team and I will raise it at the next meeting again.
[Reporter] The issue of the missing has to be solved by more pressure being applied by the international community on the Serbian government, emphasized Nysrete Kumnova. She called for greater engagement by the negotiation team on the issue of missing persons.
[Representative of the government committee for missing persons Nysrete Kumnova] This issue has to be raised at the highest levels of international and local governments. Light must be shed on all the missing and all mortal remains of our loved ones returned.
[Reporter] It has been evaluated that shedding light on missing persons is a moral and political obligation of the Kosova institutions and the negotiation team.
