France: Independence for Kosovo, yes and no!

Koha Ditore lead story reports that the French Senate has drafted a report on
Kosovo and its status.
The first 58 pages of the document cover a detailed analysis of the current
situation in Kosovo and its future perspective and seem directed at favouring
conditional independence as the most sustainable option. Then everything changes
in the last page of the report – page 59.

Page 59 of the report directly links conditional independence of Kosovo with
possible requests of Serbs in Bosnia for division and for unification with Serbia.
The introduction to the story says that the report is so confusing that it is difficult
to understand clearly whether it recommends French support for conditional
independence of Kosovo, or whether independence as an option is objected to by
Paris.
