Serb Party: Kosovo is already Independent

Cedomir Antic from G17 Group: Kosovo is already independent from Serbia

Belgrade, 7 April: Cedomir Antic, an official of G17 Plus, a coalition partner in the Serbian government, is engaged for an international conference on Kosova's [Kosovo] status and a special entity for Kosova Serbs.

Antic told KosovaLive that Serbian Deputy Prime Minister Miroljub Labus has also expressed this stance during designing of strategy on Kosova by Belgrade authorities.

"Kosovo is already independent from Serbia. But the problem lies with the fact that Serbia is not independent from Kosovo," assessed Antic.

Antic thinks that Serbia should be open to whatever option on Kosova's future status, and protection of Serb minority should be its priority.

"The G17 is engaged for resolving of status of Kosovo Serbs and then the status of Kosova. It is necessary the Serbs gain an entity as a region with broader autonomy first, through which they would keep the ties with the mother Serbia. If this is achieved, any option for Kosovo's final status is possible," Antic emphasized.

Cedomir Antic assessed that politicians in Kosova do not express a clear desire to realize full independence. "If political representatives of Kosova Albanians really want full independence, they should understand that this will not happen without dialogue with Belgrade. Given the fact that they delay such a dialogue, the year 2005 will end, and the question of status will not even be opened," said Antic.

He concluded that "another problem is that Belgrade behaves as if it does not know what they want and hope that the strategy they are working on will provide clear answers."

In spiritual sphere, in possessing or creating values never have Albanians had any reason to envy or covet others, much less have they any for such today.
The Albanians are the creators and bearers of one of humankind’s fundamental languages, a language that has its unshakable place among a dozen or so of the main languages of the world. One of the first Europe’s Christian countries, Albania has consequently been the original soil of the Western European civilization.
From the great hymn of Christianity “Te Deum” written by an Albanian Archbishop over fifteen hundreds years ago, to the teacher of Western civilization George Kastriot, the most sublime and renowned character in the world not only of Albanians, but of all Balkan peoples as well, described as “the Athlete of Christ”, to the Albanian nun Mother Teresa, the most famous Albanian women in today’s world, the proof of civilization passes through like a brilliant thread, so much and so persistently denied by the ill-wishers of Albanian nation. albania flight
