  • [01] President Rugova Receives Vice-President of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly

    PRISHTINA, Feb 3 (KIC) - The President of the Republic of Kosova Ibrahim Rugova received today in Prishtina Mr. Willy Wimmer, Vice- President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

    The current situation in Kosova and the preparations for the talks on Kosova scheduled to begin in Rambouillet, France, at the end of the week were discussed.

    President Rugova said the situation in Kosova continues to be grave and dangerous amidst a heavy Serbian military and police buildup and offensive operations in different parts of the country.

    An end to these Serb actions is an imperative now that negotiations between Prishtina and Belgrade are to start, he added.

    The Vice-President of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, Willy Wimmer, took an interest in the activities of the OSCE Kosova Verification Mission here.

    President Rugova appreciated the work of the OSCE mission and expressed hope its activities will be extended to cover other fields in Kosova in the future.

    [02] Solana's Message Delivered to President Rugova

    PRISHTINA, Feb 3 (KIC) - The President of the Republic of Kosova Ibrahim Rugova received today Greece's ambassador to Belgrade, Panayotis Vlassopoulos.

    The Greek diplomat delivered Rugova a message by NATO's Secretary General, Javier Solana.

    In the meeting, President Rugova and Ambassador Vlassopoulos discussed about the recent situation in Kosova and the preparations for the talks on an interim settlement for Kosova scheduled to begin in Rambouillet, France, on Saturday.

    [03] U^K Names Its Representatives to Rambouillet Kosova Conference

    PRISHTINA, Feb 3 (KIC) - The Kosova Liberation Army (U^K) has named its representatives to the Kosova conference in Rambouillet, France, schedule to start on Saturday.

    The General Staff of the U^K has named Ram& Buja, Jakup Krasniqi, Hashim Tha^i, Azem Syla and Xhavit Haliti as its members in the Kosova delegation to the conference, Jakup Krasniqi, the U^K spokesman, said during an interview with the Albanian Section of the Voice of America (VOA) today.

    [04] Publication of KIC's Informatori Evening Newspaper Discontinued for Lack of Funds

    PRISHTINA, Feb 3 (KIC) - The publication of Informatori, the KIC's Albanian- language evening newspaper, has discontinued this week amidst lack of funds.

    The daily newspaper, founded and edited by the late Enver Maloku, the KIC's director who was assassinated last month, has come out regularly since June 1998.

    The KIC staff spared no effort to ensure that Informatori, the fourth Albanian language outlet and the only evening daily in Kosova, continued its publication.

    Our efforts to secure sponsorship or co-financing by Kosovar institutions catering for public services in Kosova yielded no results.

    Kosova had in the second half of the past year four daily newspapers in Albanian: Bujku, Koha Ditore, Kosova Sot, and Informatori.

    In December, Serbian authorities banned the printing of Bujku, a successor to Rilindja, the oldest Albanian-language daily in Kosova, which was banned by the Serb occupation authorities in the summer of 1990, after 45 years of publication.

    [05] Serbian Forces Continue Attacking Podujeva Villages

    PRISHTINA, Feb 3 (KIC) - Last night and today (Wednesday), Serbian forces fired in the direction of a number of villages in the northern municipality of Podujeva, local LDK sources said.

    Overnight, Serbian forces fired on the villages of Sallabaj& and Majac, which have been shelled in the past few days, too.

    Beginning at 7:30 CET today, Serb forces shelled for an hour the village of Llapashtic&, a few km southwest of Podujeva, a town 30 km north of capital Prishtina. The village has been pounded by Serb forces stationed at 'Tabet e Llapashtic&s' as well as in the village of Peran, 4 km north of Podujeva.

    Five more Serb tanks have been reported deployed today at Tabet e Llapashtic&s. They had left the Dumosh airfield, which has been turned into a Serb army base for a couple of months now.

    [06] Groups of Serb Civilians Assault Young Albanians in Prishtina

    PRISHTINA, Feb 3 (KIC) - A group of Serbs assaulted today two Albanian high- school students, Bujar Hasimi (15) and Lirie Beha (f, 16) in front of their High Economics Schools in Prishtina.

    Meanwhile, Ardian Mjekiqi told the KIC he was attacked yesterday by a dozen Serbs near the Llapi mosque in Prishtina.

    A group of Serbs attacked Sunday Bashkim Rama near the Serb church.

    He received serious body injuries, LDK sources in Kodra e Trimave neighborhood said.
