Martti Ahtisaari said on a visit to Prishtina that this was the best way to achieve a multiethnic society in the disputed province.

Ahtisaari was speaking after meeting a team sent by the province to take part in talks with Serbia on Kosovo's future.

Ethnic Albanians are seeking independence from Serbia, a possibility that Serbs reject.
