Kosovo Serbs: U.N. plan forms new Albania

BELGRADE, Serbia-Montenegro, April 19 (UPI) — Kosovo Serbs claim a U.N. plan would displace minority Serbs from Kosovo and form a new state of Albania.

Two representatives of Kosovo Serbs Wednesday said the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees and the World Health Organization are allegedly preparing to displace 40,000 Serbs from Kosovo to Serbia proper, once the Kosovo future status is decided.

UNHCR officials in Belgrade rejected the allegations, the Beta news agency said.

Kosovo Serb Marko Jaksic told a news conference in Belgrade that Serbs, if forced to leave Kosovo, would not move to Serbia but would seek visas to settle in Western European countries.

Jaksic said the plan to move Serbs out of Kosovo is aimed at forming another Albanian state. Ethnic Albanians publicly say they want Kosovo independent from Belgrade.

Formally, Kosovo is part of Serbia but it has been governed by the U.N. mission since 1999, when NATO air attacks drove out Serbian troops.

Serbs and ethnic Albanians, who make 90 percent of Kosovo’s population, have been conducting U.N.-mediated talks to decide who will rule the province once NATO and the U.N. mission leave.
