Kosovo de facto independent – Negotiations on independence de jure

Prishtina-Kosovo-In the leading front-page story, Koha Ditore carries a report by the Danish Institute for International Relations, the conclusion of which is that Kosovo is de facto independent and negotiations on status are focused on how to make it a permanent status according to the wish of Kosovo Albanians.

Koha notes that “the final report which is prepared especially on the eve of the UN Security Council suggests that four ‘red lines’ need to be determined before status negotiations: status to be a guarantee for internal security, to determine sovereignty, for EU and US to guarantee security, and long-term guarantees and support for the economic and financial sector.” F.F
