Interview with Aleksandr Botsan-Kharchenko
Belgrade is offering Kosovo autonomy within Serbian borders. Pristina rejects this, insisting on internationally supervised independence.
Botsan-Kharchenko says Kosovan negotiators have been inflexible: “I see no new elements and no elaboration of their approach,” he said.
The diplomat also warned that a unilateral declaration of independence by Kosovo, supported by several Western countries, will create a big problem.
The Troika’s mandate will expire on December 10, when they are to give their recommendations to the UN Security Council.
