Europe and America toy with Kosovo's fate
MOSCOW. (RIA Novosti political commentator Vladimir Simonov) - Recently, Western statements on Kosovo have acquired an almost panicky sense of urgency.

Talking about a problem that has been brewing since NATO bombed Yugoslavia eight years ago, Zalmay Khalilzad, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said the Security Council must make a decision on Kosovo's final status within 10 days and urged Russia to cooperate. "I think the time has come for Russia to take a step in the right direction on this issue," he added.

Christina Gallach, a spokeswoman for European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana, was even more adamant. She said that if Russia rejected the Kosovo independence plan, Brussels would take matters into its own hands and make an appropriate decision.
