The fact that the Serbian representatives came in Durres without the permission of "Belgrade" impresssed me. Serbians of Kosovo are not listening anymore waht Belgrade claims and this shows that they understood the real situation. They understood that cannot gain anything if listening to directives of Belgrade. This is a very important step.
