Boris Tadic: Serbia preparing new offer on Kosovo future

UNITED NATIONS-Serbia's president said in an interview Thursday he is preparing an offer that would grant Kosovo a future just short of independence, and urged the province's leaders to be more flexible in talks about their future.

Boris Tadic told The Associated Press that in the next few days, Serbia will put forth a proposal offering Kosovo "something between autonomy and independence." Details of the plan will be presented to the six-nation Contact Group overseeing negotiations on Kosovo's future status, he said.

"I think we can achieve some very, very creative solution on Kosovo," Tadic said. He said Serbia wants to inject "new dynamics" into the talks on Kosovo's future but reiterated Serbia's long-held stance that the province must not have full independence.

Kosovo remains officially a province of Serbia, although it is a de-facto U.N. protectorate since the end of the 1998-99 war between ethnic Albanian separatists and Serb forces. Kosovo's majority ethnic Albanians insist on full independence.

Tadic spoke shortly after he attended a ceremony to raise Serbia's flag outside U.N. headquarters, after Serbia become a sovereign state following Montenegro's decision to quit their union last week. Since the alliance broke up upon Montenegro's initiative, Serbia automatically inherited the seat in the U.N., while the smaller republic needs to apply as a new member.

Tadic warned that giving Kosovo independence could destabilize the entire Balkan region and lead other ethnic groups to break away as well. As a result, he said the international community needs to slow down and resist trying to settle the Kosovo question right now. "This is why I am asking for ... new patience, new strategy and new approach on Kosovo," he said. "To simply find a solution is from time to time very useful, but that can be very dangerous."

The talks between Kosovo's ethnic Albanians and Serb officials have been going on in Vienna for several weeks. Officials have reported little progress so far. U.N. mediators hope to push the sides to an agreement on Kosovo's final status, including whether it becomes independent or remains at least partly under Belgrade's control, by the end of the year.

Tadic urged Kosovo to be more flexible on the issue. "First of all, independence is not a precondition for development of Kosovo," he said. "Secondly, I have to say you cannot eat independence. For example, you have to solve economic problems and the problems with organized crime in Kosovo." Tadic also said Serbia is doing everything it can to find war crimes suspect Gen. Ratko Mladic, who is believed to be in Serbia and getting help from hard-liners in the military.

A U.N. tribunal has charged Mladic with genocide in the 1995 slaughter of up to 8,000 Muslims in eastern Bosnia and a three-year siege of Sarajevo by Bosnian Serb troops during the 1992-95 Bosnian war. On Wednesday, chief prosecutor Carla Del Ponte said Serbia was not fully cooperating with her efforts to track down Mladic and former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic. Tadic said Del Ponte needs to give his government more help and stop passing along information about Mladic's possible position that only hinders his investigators.

Serbia's cabinet missed a recent European Union deadline to extradite Mladic to the Netherlands-based U.N. war crimes tribunal, leading to a suspension of talks with the European Union. "We have to do everything that is in our power to be closer to European Union membership and this is our strategic goal and if someone is making obstacles on this road we have a critical problem," he said. "We know that we have to do everything that is in our power to solve these problems," Tadic said. "We know our responsibility and we ask for understanding."

    What It’s Like to Chill Out With Whom the World Considers the Most Ruthless Men in the World Ratko Mladic, Radovan Karadzic and Goran Hadzic (+) Confessions of a Female War Crimes Investigator

    Retrospectively, it was all so simple, natural and matter of fact being on a boat restaurant in Belgrade, sitting with, laughing, drinking a two hundred bottle of wine and chatting about war and peace while Ratko Mladic held my hand. Mladic, a man considered the world’s most ruthless war criminal since Adolf Hitler, still at large and currently having a five million dollar bounty on his head for genocide by the international community. Yet there I was with my two best friends at the time, a former Serbian diplomat, his wife, and Ratko Mladic just chilling. There was no security, nothing you’d ordinarily expect in such circumstances. Referring to himself merely as, Sharko; this is the story of it all came about.

    Irrefutable Proof ICTY Is Corrupt Court/Irrefutable Proof the Hague Court Cannot Legitimately Prosecute Karadzic Case

    (The Documentary Secret United Nations ICC Meeting Papers Scanned Images)

    This legal technicality indicates the Hague must dismiss charges against Dr Karadzic and others awaiting trials in the Hague jail; like it or not.

    Unfortunately for the Signatures Of the Rome Statute United Nations member states instituting the ICC & ICTY housed at the Hague, insofar as the, Radovan Karadzic, as with the other Hague cases awaiting trial there, I personally witnessed these United Nations member states openly speaking about trading judicial appointments and verdicts for financial funding when I attended the 2001 ICC Preparatory Meetings at the UN in Manhattan making the iCTY and ICC morally incapable trying Radovan Karazdic and others.

    I witnessed with my own eyes and ears when attending the 2001 Preparatory Meetings to establish an newly emergent International Criminal Court, the exact caliber of criminal corruption running so very deeply at the Hague, that it was a perfectly viable topic of legitimate conversation in those meetings I attended to debate trading verdicts AND judicial appointments, for monetary funding.

    Jilly wrote:*The rep from Spain became distraught and when her country’s proposal was not taken to well by the chair of the meeting , then Spain argued in a particularly loud and noticably strongly vocal manner, “Spain (my country) strongly believes if we contribute most financial support to the Hague’s highest court, that ought to give us and other countries feeding it financially MORE direct power over its decisions.”

    ((((((((((((((((((((((((( ((((((((((((((((((((((((( Instead of censoring the country representative from Spain for even bringing up this unjust, illegal and unfair judicial idea of bribery for international judicial verdicts and judicial appointments, all country representatives present in the meeting that day all treated the Spain proposition as a ”totally legitimate topic” discussed and debated it between each other for some time. I was quite shocked!
    The idea was "let's discuss it." "It's a great topic to discuss."

    Some countries agreed with Spain’s propositions while others did not. The point here is, bribery for judicial verdicts and judicial appointments was treated as a totally legitimate topic instead of an illegitimate toic which it is in the meeting that I attended in 2001 that day to establish the ground work for a newly emergent international criminal court.))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

    In particular., since "Spain" was so overtly unafraid in bringing up this topic of trading financial funding the ICC for influence over its future judicial appointments and verdicts in front of every other UN member state present that day at the UN, "Spain" must have already known by previous experience the topic of bribery was "socially acceptable" for conversation that day. They must have previously spoke about bribing the ICTY and
    ICC before in meetings; this is my take an international sociological honor student. SPAIN's diplomatic gesture of international justice insofar as, Serbia, in all of this is, disgusting morally!


    I accuse the Hague ICTY war crimes tribunal of attempted assassination on my life and others, contempt of court and obstruction of international justice and "international witness tampering" in complicity with Richard Holbrook and Bill Clinton (Former US President of the USA) as well as political players in Spain and the Netherlands .

    I represented the state interests' of the Former Yugoslavia, in Darko Trifunovic’s absence in those meetings and I am proud to undertake this effort on Serbia’s behalf.
