Albanian TV: Western Balkan leaders meet in Greece, back Kosovo independence

Text of report by Albanian TV on 3 May

Western Balkan heads of governments are in Thessaloniki discussing their countries' European futures. Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha had a meeting with Greek Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis at about 1900 [1700 gmt].

The meeting of the prime ministers, which will take place tomorrow, was preceded by a meeting of foreign ministers. The ministers discussed the possible signing of a regional free trade agreement to replace the current 32 bilateral agreements. They also agreed on the need to fund the main [road] corridors, such as the fourth, sixth, and 10th corridors. No mention of the eighth corridor was made.

The meeting paid special attention to the question of Kosova [Kosovo], which was represented by President Fatmir Sejdiu and Soren Jessen-Petersen, chief administrator. At the meeting the countries of the region expressed their support for Kosova's independence and for the settlement of the status being a product of consensus and talks among the parties.

Albanian Foreign Minister Besnik Mustafaj had meetings with Greek Foreign Minister Bakoyannis, the representative of Austria's EU presidency, Chief Administrator Petersen, and the Japanese foreign minister. Mustafaj was given assurances by Austria, which currently holds the EU presidency, that the Stabilization and Association Agreement would be signed by the end of Austria's presidency.

Hey, when did albania get television technology? That's news to me. Cool, welcome to the modern world. Now you can spread your propoganda easier and reach more ignorant shitpar peasant villages.

Maybe you will get indoor toilets next. But will you know how to use them? Well, it's easy, just look at the way ceku puts his ass on del ponte's face, then flush.

Yea I think they that technology a few days ago. I remember because they learned to use indoor toilets on the same day when they saw Del Ponte put her ass all over Serbia and lay a huge dump all over that bitch.

Its funny you know your slav brothers are in the same boat. Not just in Kosovo/a but in serbia proper as well. Forget about the main cities go to the country side and guess what?

Still guessing???

There is no difference in the amount of ignorant peasants nor luxurious amenities on either side!

Before you point and riducule, look at whats in your backyard. Especially all the serbs from croatia or bosnia or even Kosovo/a that live in slums (a sad example ppl living under bridges with no utilities or toilets!) Serbs from serbia proper don't even treat them as brothers but as a burden and want them out. Truly SAD!

Please grow up and see that all the ppl in the Balkans are in a bad situation bc of Serbias Regime of the 90's.

Its sad to see a country FROY be in its current position when at one time it was envied by other eastern European countries. Now we're all behind and in worse condition then everyone. Albanians, Bosnians, Croatians, and Serbs.

Grow up and look at reality!

Considering Albanian resources in Kosova bankrolled any technological advances Serbia has made in the past 50 years, that's a laughable comment ny.

Croatia is well on its way to the EU. Once and for all it's returning to its rightful place in Europe. Major commentators (aside from German-speakers in the EU) such as Misha Glenny no longer consider it a Balkan country--and for good reason. The Croats won their war and then quickly set to rebuild--which they continue to do till this day; can't see any one from the south-east picking a fight with them lol. They're simply too busy looking forward.

Good luck Balkanistas!
