Mayors of ethnic Serbian municipalities in northern Kosovo say they have received assurances from Serbia's parliament speaker that local and parliamentary elections will be held in Kosovo as well.

The mayors spoke to reporters after meeting with parliament speaker Slavica Djukic-Dejanovic in Belgrade on March 6.

The mayors were quoted as saying Djukic-Dejanovic assured them the elections -- due in late April or early May -- would be held "on the entire territory of Serbia, Kosovo included."

In response, the deputy prime minister of Kosovo's ethnic Albanian-led government, Hajredin Kuci, said Kosovo expected from official Belgrade "European behavior," respect for international agreements, and no interference in the internal affairs of a foreign country.

Serbia -- which rejects the independence Kosovo's ethnic Albanian majority declared in 2008 -- was granted EU candidate-country status early this month, but only after Belgrade and Pristina made a breakthrough in an EU-sponsored dialogue.

Serbia, which has been granted the EU candidate status, with the explicit footnote that Kosovo is under the UNSCR 1244, is likewise expecting the "European behavior" by the Serbia's ethnic minority - the Albanians in Kosovo. The Serbs have not occupied a foreign territory. They live in Serbia. The question of who has occupied whose territory is quite the opposite.

And, BTW, Mrs Slavica Djukic-Dejanovic is the President of the Serbian Parliament.

Better not upset the Serbs lest we all know the consequences of that...

Don't forget that they'll deny any and all plausability and then claim to be the victim.

With the exception of Moldova, Serbia is the laughing stock of Europe. A third world country in SE Europe!

The laughing stock of Europe, i.e. of Serbia, are those traitors who are giving away the territory of Serbia to Albanian criminals and other low lives, thinking everything is all right in the SE Europe and their stinking disability money is all that matters.

Serbia is laughing stock. The rest of Europe looks down upon this little country with its backward citizens, corruption, and penchant for war with its neighbors.

Kosovo was occupied by Serbia. In the last 500, Kosovo was Serbian territory only but a few years during Milosevic reign. Other then that it was part of Federal Yugoslavia for about 50 years, 400 years a recognized Vilayet, 12 years a free country, and at least several years part of Albania. Thus, Serbia's claim over Kosovo does not hold water. Actually, Mongolia has a better argument to claiming Hungary as their territory.

The way you're arguing, Boston is still a part of the UK, and there has never been a Boston Tea Party in the history of the USA.

Kosovo and Metohia (the Black Bird and Church) territorially belong to Serbia, and the territory is now occupied by the Albanians, most of whom don't even know what the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was. In that form of Yugoslavia Kosmet used to be part of Serbia, and it is part of Serbia now. Serbia is not claiming anything that isn't hers. When has it become an Albaninan land I have no idea. However, the fact that there are a number of Albanian criminals living now in Kosovo is a sad truth.

But keep going against and ignoring the status of Kosovo under the UNSCR 1244 - the way Kosovo Albanians are making themselves ridiculous and the way they're falling into the abyss of illegality is beyond belief. Albany may be Albanian land to all your heart's content. Hopefully, the Albaninans living in the US are satisfied with the Albanian education and their native tongue being provided to them by the US tax payers. The Serbs would be greatly disappointed to find out that is not the case, and that the Albanians in the US don't have access to all the human rights to which your population is entitled to. Why do the Albanians, aside from territory, need the Serbian people as well, that is the question. It might be stemming from your insatiable sadistic side.

Actually, I was arguing quite the opposite. One can't claim anything as their own if one never owned it. Just a fact check: Kosovo was a Constituive Member of Federal Yugoslavia not part of Serbia, a fact that proves my knowledge on Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia is superior to say the least compare to yours.

Your knowledge on the subject deserves an "F" grade as You say "When has it become an Albaninan land I have no idea". Sir/Madam, besides the misspelling, please know it is not Albanian land, it is Kosovan land. Serbs among others leave there still.

As per the rest of your oral dierrhea, I can't and must not responde to such nonsense. However, I beg you to know that anger is not the best tool when arguing any matter.

All you're superior at is throwing misinformation which tend to become utmost lies. Kosovo has always been and according to the Constitution of Serbia still is an Autonomous Province of the Republic of Serbia - and it had the same status in the SFRY and in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. People of Kosovo and of all other Republics had their rights guaranteed by the Constitution. The fact that the Albanians had never wanted to admit to being a minority (2 mil. people) in a country with population of more than 20 mil. people, never wanted to contribute to the European values and make progress in their standards of living, and that they never liked Albania proper has generated a lot of problems in the region.

As for the misspelling, oh, please excuse my massacring of the English language. I'd already warned the readers of such atrocities to be committed by a native speaker of the Serbian language, a former Yugoslavian.

As for your arguing against your very own words "Kosovo .... 12 years a free country, and at least several years part of Albania" and pathetic bragging of having any actual knowledge on the subject, I rest my case.

Present status of Kosovo is UNSCR 1244, and naturally the Serbs live in Kosovo. Legal facts are the best way to cure any anger and that is something the Albanians should learn.

Serbs are to be commended for bringing "European values" to the region. Among those values: massacres, assassinations, genocide, war crimes, Gov't organized crime, wars, destruction of property, tennis.

You should be held responsible just as majority of Serbs during that period. You cheered Milosevic and his hordes as they "liberated" territories and cleansed them of others with any means possible. I'm sure you were glad when Mr Djindjic, the beacon of hope for Serbia was assassinated.

Since 1999 Kosovo is free. Never will evermore any Serb military step in it. As an Amarican, I will make sure of it with all I can do. You may not liked it but that is the truth. As for anger management You serbs are well known to have failed at it, several times.
