Feith critical of K. Serb parliament
BELGRADE -- The European Union's civil administrator for Kosovo Pieter Feith says the announced formation of a provisional Serb parliament in the province is "regrettable".
The Dutch diplomat told Kosovska Mitrovica-based Radio Kontakt Plus that it would be "regrettable if another set of parallel institutions were to be formed in Kosovo", and stressed that "the state of Kosovo must rule in its entire territory", Tanjug news agency said.
"The mandate I was given was to establish a multi-ethnic society in Kosovo, to work to build Kosovo's future, to protect the minorities and to start the reconciliation process among the communities. That is my plan," Feith was quoted as saying.
The Kosovo Serb parliament looks set to be formed on June 15, as announced by the local DSS and SRS branches in the province earlier this week, when new municipal government was appointed in Kosovska Mitrovica.
But the DS, G17 Plus and SPS local officials have said that this decision should be made in agreement with the state institutions in Belgrade.
The parliament will have 45 delegates, with two seats reserved for ethnic minorities, it was announced.
