Summary/Abstract: The Political Advisor to the Serbian Prime Minister laments the fact that the Kosovo Serbs have been exposed to ethnic cleansing. With the exodus of the Kosovo Serbs, the multi-ethnicity of the province is put into danger and – consequently – the UNMIK mandate is on the verge of total failure. Because elementary standards haven’t been met, it is too early to open the issue of future status. In all aspects of Kosovo’s future, Belgrade’s active role in negotiations is seen as indispensable for Belgrade and the Kosovo Serbs alike. According to the author, talks on decentralisation are of paramount importance for the Kosovo Serbs, as they will show how much the international community and the Albanian majority do care about a multi-ethnic Kosovo.
