Belgrade, Feb 8, 2007 - Coordinator of the Serbian state team for negotiations on the future status of Kosovo-Metohija Slobodan Samardzic said today that the Serbian government will propose a resolution on Kosovo-Metohija on the occasion of the proposal of UN Special Envoy Martti Ahtisaari on the future status of Kosovo. The resolution is to be adopted by a new convocation of Serbian parliament.


Samardzic told the Beta news agency that the formal proposer of the resolution will be the Serbian government, while the text of the proposal will be drawn up by the current negotiating team.


He said that the government will propose that the current team remains in function until a new government is set up.


The resolution will contain a clear stance concerning Ahtisaari's proposal and the position that the negotiations should be continued. It will be proposed that the current negotiation team conduct negotiations in Vienna, scheduled by UN Special Envoy Martti Ahtisaari.


Samardzic added that the team will be in function until a new Serbian government is formed, which will propose the new composition of the negotiating team.
