Kosovo Assembly reconfirms the will of people for independence

All daily papers report that the Kosovo Assembly voted unanimously yesterday
in favour of a resolution that “reconfirms the will of the people of Kosovo for
an independent and sovereign state of Kosovo.”

The text approved says that the Resolution presents a legal and political basis
for the platform of Kosovo Delegation to the status talks, highlights Koha.

Zëri carries a quote from SRSG Søren Jessen-Petersen who said that the
Assembly has “appropriately assumed its responsibility”, while Koha Ditore
quotes Head of UNMIK Legal Office Alexander Borg-Olivier who said, “In
principle, the Resolution is OK and this is noted in the last sentence.”

Bota Sot carries the front-page headline Resolution, Historic Decision for
Kosovo while Express writes Of Course they gave in referring to Kosovo
Assembly members. F.F.
