Russia: Ahtisaari's plan on Kosovo dangerous experiment

PanARMENIAN.Net - "Marti Ahtisaari's plan that provides for Kosovo's independence is a dangerous experiment," said Sergey Yastrzhembsky, the Russian president's aide for relations with the EU. "The international community has time and possibilities to proceed with the work and search for a more compromise formula. We would not like to join a perilous experiment of dividing a sovereign state against its will," he said.

Yastrzhembsky emphasized that any settlement formula should be fair for both Belgrade and Pristina. A decision that damages the interests of one side and satisfies the other can't be fair. It will become a delayed-action mine for other conflicts and aggravation of situation in the region," the presidential aide said.

Mr Yastrzhembsky noted that Ahtisaari's plan doesn't meet necessary criteria and doesn't furnish a formula admissible for both sides. "Any compromise should satisfy the interests of the sides and cause equal damage to both," he said, RIA Novosti reports.
