Without prior reconciliation between
Serbs and Albanians, there is not sense in discussing Kosovo's final status.
By Nebojsa Covic in Belgrade (BCR

The Kosovo-Metohija issue is widely seen
as insoluble. I do not agree with this, however, though if I now maintain
there are no insoluble issues, as I intend to, I hope no one will accuse
me of relying on unfounded optimism. On the contrary, my optimism is well
founded, and, I believe, entirely rational.
There may be hard and headache-inducing
obstacles, but none are insurmountable.
