Next round of Kosovo talks to include status issue - UN envoy

Text of report by Serbian Studio B TV on 24 May

[Presenter] UN special envoy for Kosovo status talks Martti Ahtisaari has said in Helsinki following talks with Serbia-Montenegro Foreign Minister Vuk Draskovic that he is encouraged by the talks in Vienna [between Belgrade and Pristina, held on 23 May], expressing hope that the next round of talks between Belgrade and Pristina, one which will also include the status issue, will begin by end of July.

Draskovic said that he was encouraged by what Ahtisaari had told him about the talks in Vienna, adding that we were still far from a compromise solution, which is the only solution that could be sustainable.
