Prishtina [Pristina], 31 March: The Negotiating Team approved today in principle the document of the international mediators on decentralization and appointed Lutfi Haziri as chairman of the Kosovar delegation in the third meeting on decentralization scheduled for 3 April in Vienna.
The president's adviser, Skender Hyseni, said that the Negotiating Team has reviewed carefully the document brought by UN Deputy Mediator Albert Rohan.
"The Negotiating Team approved this draft document in principle with some remarks made by the Political Group," said Hyseni, without giving any details on these remarks.
"We have determined the red lines. Every reform of the local self-administration must secure the unitary character and the territorial integrity of Kosova [Kosovo]," said Hyseni.
He denied the statements that this document offers a solution, which Kosova has to pay for its independence. "We cannot qualify it as a price, because a certain period, as an independent state, Kosova would experience the need for the reform of the local self-administration," said Hyseni.
He also said that there are no disagreements among the Negotiating Team members.
The Negotiating Team has also decided on the composition of the Kosovar delegation that will attend the third meeting on decentralization. The delegation consists of Skender Hyseni, Ardian Gjini, Fehmi Mujota, Sadik Idriz, Enver Hoxhaj, Ylber Hysaj, and Blerim Shala, whereas Deputy Prime Minister Lutfi Haziri will chair it.
