Moscow believes that it should work out a compromise approach to the Kosovo problem together with the European Union
Moscow believes that it should work out a compromise approach to the Kosovo problem together with the European Union. No rash decisions should be taken, Sergei Yastrzhembsky, the Russian president’s aide for relations with the European Union, said on Tuesday. In an interview with the Vesti news program he said he was sure that the Kosovo status would feature at the Russia-EU summit alongside with other vital international problems. The summit will be held in Portugal on October 26, 2007. Yastrzhembsky said there was no reason for showing unreasonable haste in settling the Kosovo problem. Hasty and ineffectual decisions will not only normalize the situation in this part of Europe but will make it more complex and dramatic. Yastrzhembsky described Kosovo as “a question of questions for Europe” and “the most urgent issue for the Europeans”. “Europe is very much concerned with how the situation will develop in Kosovo. We are closely watching this process and are tracking down the situation,“ Yastrzhembsky went on to say. Of course, this issue is going to be discussed, especially in the context of efforts by the troika, including Russia, the European Union and the United States, to settle the Kosovo problem, the Russian president’s aide said. Yastrzhembsky said that any statements on unilateral independence were inadmissible. “They prevent the work of international brokers. Therefore, we will check the clocks with the European Union and sum up the results of their work. We will have to decide what we need to do to arrive at any compromise vision of the problem and how to solve the problem before the troika mandate expires,” he said. He recalled that the Russia-EU summits had traditionally been dominated by the most urgent international problems. “Part of the summit is usually devoted to Russian-European interaction in all spheres while the other part is devoted to international issues,” Yastrzhembsky stressed. He said international issues would include Kosovo, the Middle East, the situation in the Palestinian autonomy, the situation around Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan.
