Holbrooke: Montenegro and Kosovo should become Independent

US Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, one of the creators of the Dayton Accords,
has stated that Montenegro and Kosovo should become independent. It is
“important that Montenegro becomes an independent state like all other countries
of the former Yugoslavia.”

Holbrooke considers that “Kosovo should also be an independent state” under the
condition “that firm guarantees are given for safety, property, cultural heritage and
all other rights to Serbs.” He assessed that stories that an independent Kosovo
could threaten stability in the region and that Republika Srpska could secede are “nonsense.”
