Russia’s position on the issue of a settlement in Kosovo remains unchanged
Russia’s position on the issue of a settlement in Kosovo remains unchanged, Foreign Ministry spokesman Mikhail Kamynin told Itar-Tass. The UN Secretary General’s special envoy, Martti Ahtisaari, is due to present his settlement plan to the UN Security Council later on Monday. “We are for continuing the process of diplomatic negotiations over Kosovo with the aim of finding a compromise option,” the diplomat said. “No artificial solution of the problem will be possible.” The UN Security Council will first examine the Ahtisaari plan. Specific proposals by the parties concerned will be made later, after the SC discusses the special envoy’s proposal next month. The Ahtsaari plan envisages wide sovereignty for the Serbian territory of Kosovo under international control and the auspices of the European Union, the possibility of its membership of international organizations and the adoption of its own constitution. Russia has repeatedly pointed to the need for continuing the negotiating process. It also believes that Ahtisaari may be replaced by another envoy, if he fails to achieve more. Moscow believes it would be too early to plug the UN Security Council into solving the Kosovo problem now and will be prepared to support a solution that would suit both sides.
