This year will be decisive for Kosovars and we will be there to help with our
diplomacy to support the negotiations and together with NATO and KFOR troops
to maintain security, the US Undersecretary of State, Nicholas Burns has said
recently, writes Kosovo daily Zëri on the front page.
Burns also said that the US leadership in the Balkans is absolutely necessary. They
have increased their efforts and there have developed closer relations of the US
with the EU, he said.
“The common goal of the US and EU in the Balkans for 2006 will be the support
in order for the region to reform and integrate after the wars that have taken
place,” he said.
Burns made these comments on 15 December in Washington in a conference on
US-Europe relations, but the State Department published his speech on 27
December, says Zëri.
