Kosovo names delegation for U.N.-mediated talks with Serbia

PRISTINA, Serbia-Montenegro (AP) - Kosovo leaders named a team Tuesday that will participate in the U.N.-mediated talks with Serbia's officials next week in what is billed a symbolic start of talks to determine the future of the disputed province.

The seven-member team will be lead by Lutfi Haziri, the minister of local government administration, and by Jakup Krasniqi, of the opposition Democratic Party of Kosovo, according to Muhamet Hamiti, an adviser of Kosovo's president.

The first round of talks -- on Feb. 20-21 in Vienna, Austria -- will deal with the local government reform aimed at giving Kosovo's Serbs and other minorities more say in areas where they live.

The two sides have disagreed over how much power should be held locally, with minority Serbs insisting they be allowed to run affairs in their communities and have special links to Belgrade. Ethnic Albanians have rejected the idea, saying such decentralization would lead to the province's ethnic division.

Kosovo, a province of 2 million, has been run by the United Nations since a 1999 NATO bombing campaign ended a Serb crackdown on independence-minded ethnic Albanian rebels.

Kosovo's ethnic Albanians, which comprise about 90 percent of the population, have demanded outright independence, while Serbia insists it retains some control over the region it consider an integral part of their nation.

Western diplomats recently indicated that Kosovo's quest for independence was conditional on it becoming a democracy that respected minority rights, with local government reform a key to that goal.

Due to what I have experienced "behind the scene", Kosova albanians will be surprised when they discover that real independence is out of the question.

Learn english you serb punk.

Nevermind, I forgot you were taught russian in your elementary schools.

"Learn english you serb punk.

Maybe you should take your own advice, asswipe. If you want to write it properly, it would be:

"Learn English you Serb punk."
"Nevermind, I forgot you were taught Russian in your elementary schools."

Even with the two obvious spelling errors the grammar is still incorrect.

The correct way to say is behind the scenes since he said "experienced" as in plural. Also "they will be surprised" is half-way incorrect since they needs to be replaced (clarified) with Kosovars or Kosova Albanians. Mir, you obviously know how to capitalize, wow, big deal. Annonymous you are wrong they [Serbs] were not taught Russian, in fact there is a big illiterat rate amongs Serbs, I believe it is much higher then Kosovar-Albanians.

Anonymous your statement about independence is a contradiction because everyone who can read knows that Kosova will be Independent, it is a given [fact].

Rroft Kosova e Madhe!

Here is some news from your BULLSHIT media, by the way, B92 can be considered the worst in public trust in Europe.

"Server said that the eventual independence of Kosovo, and the fact that there would be two nations in Europe that spoke Albanian, is not something that is unheard of in Europe.

“There are two European nations that speak German; Austria and Germany. It would not be too strange to have two nations in which Albanian is spoken.” Server said. "

Anonymous since you have been behind the scenese, have you met anyone important??

That is strange cause from what I am hearing in the diplomatic circles here in Geneva the following options remain for serbia:

a) swallow the fact that Kosova is a state
b) chew it so it doesnt cause indigestion

Mir, that link was useless. I had to search and finally go to Cia.gov to find what you posted. One big problem, I said SERBS not S&M (which includes Kosova). If your willing to find a good trusted source, I'm looking for Serbs of Serbia and the percentage of them that can speak more than one language.

ivan said...

"I said SERBS not S&M (which includes Kosova)."

good point anonymous, the reason why the above percentages are not 100%, is because siptari are illeterate, so they make the Serbia and Montenegro % less than 100%.

Dardania 2006 said...

Yet most of us speak one of these languages:

German, English, French, Italian, and of course all speak imposed Serbian.

ivan said...

Dardania,

most of you outside of KiM, but surely the ones who have never stepped from KiM speak only albanian and broken serbian.

Not true Ivan. Nowhere else have I seen more people speaking foreign languages. The younger people talk English, French, and some Italian. The older generations French and Russian.

You never visited Kosova have you?

Anonymous said...

Ivan,

Do you speak "broken" Albanian?

For your information, Kosovar Albanians who speak "broken" Serbian are the young generations who already speak English and Serbian is their third language.

Too lazy to open. Give me a summary about Serbians being descendents of Satan or something so that I dont have to click the link.

Anonymous said...

Mir,
you probably have problems or you had problems before opening URLs so you think that the others are stupid as you are...talking from your own experience?...we speak more foreign languages than you do...you don't, so you think that other´s can't either...you don't have idea about things in Kosova that's why you lost it stupid...

Mir said...

"we speak more foreign languages than you do...you don't, so you think that other´s can't either"

Good logic. Most Americans speak only English. Guess Americans are ranked as the dumbest people on Earth on your list?

Language dosen't dictate intelligence, and that is a very stupid attempt at insulting me. Not even sure if it was supposed to be an insult or not.

"you don't have idea about things in Kosova that's why you lost it stupid"

You're right I don't. I don't think I will ever be able to go back and see the land with the mujaheedin track record there. We lost it because NATO bombed us into submission, not because of anything your "glorious" armies did. You didn't give that land independence, a completely seperate continent did it for you.

ivan said...

Hey Mir,

give the guys a break. They actually are convinced that Alexander the Great was Albanian :o)

Pathetic

Anonymous said...

actually I didn´t insult you...that wasn´t the meaning...the way you lost Kosova just shows how stupid you are...you wen´t in a war with Usa...well that was really stupid...you wen´t on cleansing the entire albanian population in Kosova, that was stupid too...you still talk those mujahedin bullshits like you did in 98-99...You didn´t evolve your ideas at all from that time...that´s stupid too...you are maybe intelligent but you should add knowlegde to your brain...
after 1999 we didn´t want serbs in o Kosova too...but we have to live together-that´s the bitter reality that we have to accept...you will get used of seeing Kosova as a new country or you will confront yourself again with the international community...I hope you learned the lesson of 1999...if not than play on the nationalistic card again...continue to be stupid...no offence but this is reality...and reality can hurt

hey anonymous, did they ever teach you how to use sentences and full stops ?

"good point anonymous, the reason why the above percentages are not 100%, is because siptari are illeterate, so they make the Serbia and Montenegro % less than 100%."

Shqiptart are illeterat? Wow, you, as an individual, are the dumbest person EVER! Also you didn't reply to the quote that I got from your BULLSHIT b92, you keep arguing "no two albanian countries..blah blah". Kosovars, can speak Albanian, and another foreign language (such as english) while 70% of Serbs in Kosova can't even speak Albanian.

"is because siptari are illeterate,"

This shows your fucking IQ, if you wrote something in serbian most people here will understand it. Whereas you can't understand 5 albanian sentence, or better yet curse in albanian (which is the first thing people learn).

I've seen you curse, and your curse is pathetic, not to mention your spelling is messy like the mass graves in Srebenica.

PS
Make that 70% of all Serbs that cant learn Albanian, "our complexes" shows your inferiority to learn a language that is simple to learn.

Im still the same ANONYMOUS FYI

Mir said...

Explain to me WHY Serbians should learn Albanian in a SERBIAN SOVEREIGN STATE. Please explain, this should be very good.

Anonymous said...

Your sovereignity was bombed from Nato( god bless)...in every sentence I write three punctual signs because there is much more to say for every sentence I write to you...but with idiots like you is hard to discuss that´s why i try to be as short as possible...you understand only the language of violence and that´s all...You are stupid and idiot´s at the same time( I will write one punctual sign now, because there is nothing left to add in this statement).
Learn a foreign language and you will respect the people who speak it...or because you can use it in daily life...we all speak english because english is dominating and expanding language in the whole world...as a neighboor you should learn albanian or those serbs who live in Kosova should do that so their lives will be better...Integrate-that sound pretty europian to me...
you still bullshit about the sovereignity...you definitely live in 98-99 you definitely think the same way your stupid Hague criminal leaders think...

Mir said...

"You are stupid and idiot´s at the same time"

Well first, it would be "idiots". Second, that is the dumbest sentence because that is basically same thing.

That's like saying I'm living and breathing at the same time lol.

Ivan,

Alexander the Great had a mother who was Epirote, thus Albanian.

Now don't get jealous.

Even that crappy movie speaks of her as such. Angelina had to speak with an "Albanian accent" (which they got wrong).

You can try and rewrite facts that have been known for millenia, you are wasting time :)

Alexandre is a Greek personality, in a historical and political sense, but the Greeks themselves considered him Barbarian because:

a) Macedonians were not Greek
b) Epirots even less

I suggest a large dose of Chocolate Ice Cream.

Dardania 2006 said...

Mir,

No Serb should learn Albanian in Serbia.

Those that are in Kosova must learn Albanian in order to get around (most of the people are Albanian).

That is like saying that Serbs that go to Canada will not speak English. You just have to! You live among these people.

To refuse to accept these peoples language and existance is to be racist.

"hey anonymous, did they ever teach you how to use sentences and full stops ?"

So that's where you tried to learn english, in England. Englad this (.) is called FULL STOP, other places in the world call it a PERIOD.

"Explain to me WHY Serbians should learn Albanian"

The point is you are too stupid or ignorant to learn Albanian. I don't think your brain could fathom our "complex" language seeing as you act in privitistic manners. Want to learn something?
