Greece urges caution on Kosovo

Greece's foreign minister urged caution in setting tight deadlines on the future of Kosovo, a Serbian province, so that solving one Balkan controversy would not create another.

"Whatever decisions are made on Kosovo must be decisions which are the product of broader agreement in the region," Dora Bakoyannis, in New York for a high-level U.N. General Assembly session, said in an interview late on Saturday.

U.N. negotiations on the future of Kosovo, known as final status talks, are conducted by Martti Ahtisaari, a Finish statesman. A plan is expected to be presented to the U.N. Security Council for approval by the end of the year.

"That means also Serbia and the neighboring countries. One must be very careful that whatever decisions are made do not solve one problem and create another," she said.

"If we need a few more months for the decision we must not hasten a decision which might not be fully prepared," Bakoyannis said. She would not say what kind of a solution she preferred, adding the devil was in the detail of any plan.
