    UNMIK IS NOT READY FOR COOPERATION - FEDERAL COMMITTEE

    (Tanjug, 17. 7. 2001.)

    Kosovska Mitrovica UNMIK's lack of readiness for cooperation at all levels has been evident in the past few weeks, but Yugoslavia should not and must not close its door for cooperation, the Yugoslav Committee for Kosovo and Metohija said in Kosovska Mitrovica on Monday. "Athough cooperation with UNMIK and KFOR has grown colder, we have informed international representatives that the Yugoslav Committee is ready for maximum cooperation, observing UN Resolution 1244," Committee head Momcilo Trajkovic told a press conference in Kosovska Mitrovica, northern Kosovo-Metohija.

    SERBIAN GOVERNMENT WANTS TO RESOLVE PROBLEM OF KOSOVO MISSING - DOS

    (Tanjug, 17. 7. 2001.)

    Belgrade - The Democratic Party (DS), the Serbian government and its Premier Zoran Djindjic want to resolve the problem of missing persons in Kosovo-Metohija, and that is the reason for a planned meeting between Djindjic and Kosovo Albanian leader Hashim Thaci, Democratic Opposition of Serbia (DOS) whip in Serbian parliament Cedomir Jovanovic said. Pragmatism is needed to resolve that problem. Talks must consequently be held with persons who cannot be avoided in such endeavors. They include Thaci and all who are practically in power in Kosovo now, Jovanovic told the press.
