Intensive negotiations are continuing in the UN Security Council in New York. We are working to achieve a resolution paving the way for implementation of the Ahtisaari proposals as soon as possible.
On 18 June, my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary discussed Kosovo at the EU General Affairs and External Relations Council. The Council confirmed its support for UN Special Envoy Martti Ahtisaari and reiterated its view that his comprehensive proposals provide the basis for the settlement of the Kosovo issue by a new resolution of the UN Security Council.
