NATO Assembly adopts Kosovo resolution

COPENHAGEN -- Monday – The NATO Parliamentary Assembly, meeting in Copenhagen, has abandoned an planned resolution on Kosovo which prejudiced the outcome of status negotiations by calling for conditional independence for the province.
Instead, the 51st Annual Meeting of the Western alliance’s Parliamentary Assembly has adopted a resolution calling for the continued application of UN Security Council Resolution 1244.
The head of the Serbia-Montenegro delegation to the meeting, Aleksandar Pravdic, said that the new resolution insists that the talks on the eventual status of Kosovo must not be prejudiced.
“All delegates at the NATO Assembly supported our demand that the resolution calling for conditional independence could nut stand, so the new resolution is acceptance of UN Security Council Resolution 1244 and a call to governments for full support of the Euro-Atlantic integration of the region.
“It supports the implementation of standards, the established process of decentralisation, protection of the rights of Serbs and other minorities and, of course, securing effective protection of the cultural and religious legacy,” said Pravdic.
