President comments on Kosovo

Kosovo is an open wound that will take time to heal, said Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič in an interview.

Kosovo is an open wound that will take time to heal, said Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič in an interview.

"I see the biggest mistake in the fact that some countries promised an independent Kosovo before the conflict in the province was resolved, and did not take into consideration the opinion of others. This led to a situation that is very difficult to solve now.”

He said that Slovakia shares the European Union’s opinion. The UN Security Council will start debating the issue of Kosovo on December 19.

Two points-of-view will be discussed: pro-Serbian Russia will keep demanding further talks, while a second group of countries, led by the US, considers the talks to be finished and will call for the adoption of a final decision. SITA
