Text of report by Radio-Television Kosovo TV website on 10 October

The Kosova [Kosovo] Assembly will reserve 20 seats for non-Albanian minority officials. Ten seats will be given to Serb officials and the other ten to officials of other minority communities in the region.

Kosova President Fatmir Sejdiu said ministerial posts will also be reserved for minority officials. President Sejdiu said that in this way Prishtina [Pristina] will be able to regulate guarantees for the minorities in Kosova. One of the guarantees for minorities will be that Serbs will be given a university in Serbian, the one in northern [Kosovska] Mitrovica, Kosova President Fatmir Sejdiu said.
