Belgrade/Pristina, 27 March: Serbia-Montenegro Human and Minority Rights Minister Rasim Ljajic has said that Serbia needs to use more arguments in the Kosovo status discussions, and arguments which are not based on myths.
Ljajic said that Serbia needed to show that it was ready to compromise and that it should be aware that the situation will not go back to the way it once was.
"It is doubtful that the Albanians will accept Belgrade having control and that is why an original solution must be found, like a solution was found in Bosnia that had never been heard of until then," Ljajic said.
Great Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair, in a congratulatory letter to Kosovo's new Prime Minister Agim Ceku, stated that the implementation of human rights standards must be Kosovo's primary goal.
"This will help Kosovo reach European norms for creating democratic institutions, successfully administering and creating a legal state," Blair said.
