    [06] POSSIBILITY OF KOSOVA BEING REPUBLIC WITHIN FYR CAN AS WELL BE DISCUSSED- Dushan

    TIRANA, OCT 16 (ATA)- The chairman of the Serb "New Democracy" Party, Dushan Mihajlovic, has said that the Serbs and Albanians should themselves negotiate a solution to their issue.

    In an interview with Deutsche Welle, Mihajlovic says that the latest speculations on this issue have in their foundation the planned meeting between the two parties' representatives in in New York in December.

    Mihajlovic says that this meeting, to be held under the supervision of the non governmental organisation "The project on Ethnic Relations", does not have unreal ambitions, offering ready solutions to the Kosova issue. The Albanians and Serbs should come to an agreement for coexistence, reach an historical compromise, "as the Serbs and Albanians have lived in Kosova for centuries", he adds.

    Asked what concept is acceptable to him regarding Kosova, Mihajlovic says: "As one of the solutions, not pretending it will be accepted, we consider the return of the Kosova status of 1974 to correct the elements which served as a basis for Kosova's secession from Serbia and Yugoslavia".

    As regards the possibility of Kosova's being a republic in the framework of the Yugoslav Federation, Mihajlovic stresses that "this possibility can as well be discussed". However, he says that the authors of this project are not interested in a real solution of the Kosova issue because, according to him, no agreement, acceptable to both sides, can be reached on conditions.

    Mihajlovic considers the signing of the Milosevic - Rugova agreement for the normalisation of schools in Albanian a positive step.

    He says that during talks with U.S. partners he got the impression that Washington is also also waiting for the normalisation of the situation in other fields as well as for the full observation of the Human Rights and Freedoms in Kosova.

    He stresses that "unless the Kosova issue is resolved there can be no real economic development" of the Rump Yugoslavia. ag/pas/lm/k

    [07] ALBANIAN PRESIDENT AWARDS GOLD ORDER "MOTHER TERESA" TO ALOIS MOCK

    TIRANA, OCT 16 (ATA)- By F.Nikolla, President of the Republic of Albania Sali Berisha on Wednesday awarded Alois Mock the gold order "Mother Teresa", during an official dinner at the Palace of Brigades in Tirana.

    During the ceremony, to which honorable figures of the Albanian science and culture were also invited, Berisha considered Alois Mock "one among the most outstanding European politicians, who devoted his energy and wit to the processes of European union and integrity" and "one among the main architects of the current Austrian democracy".

    Berisha said that Austria's membership in the European Union makes up one of the major achievements of the Austrian Foreign policy and in this relation, Mr. Alois Mock rendered a historic contribution not only to his own nation but also to the entire European Union.

    Berisha described Austria and the Austrian nation as "the traditional friend and ally of Albania and the Albanian nation".

    "In the best tradition of the outstanding Austrian friends of Albania who denounced the St. Stefani treaty and backed the creation of the Albanian independent state in its own lands, of the Albanologs, who with great scientific responsibility and good willingness studied the roots of the Albanian national culture and ethnogenesis, Alois Mock is one among the best and precious friends of Albania".

    Berisha also referred to the contribution of Mr. Mock " as one among the first European figures who has lent his hand to the opposition democratic forces in Albania since the first weeks of their creation, helping them with their efforts to liberate the nation from the most savage dictatorship in Europe after the Second World War".

    "He was among the first to hail the DP victory and visit Albania after this historic victory. Through his contribution, in a very short awhile, the friendly Austria has become today one among the major supporters of Albania".

    "Mr. Alois Mock, as a friend of Albania in the post of the chairman of the European Democratic Union strongly supported the Democratic Party in its efforts for membership in this union".

    Mock considered the Gold order "Mother Teresa", a friendly medal.

    "Mother Teresa, is a saint, because she asks from herself more than from others. "It is particularly important to be awarded the order with the name of this distinguished woman of the Albania nation, considering that I come form a rich country which together with other nations of the same level feel duty-bound towards the less developed countries".

    On this occasion he expressed respect for the Albanian authorities' efforts on the path of democracy and committed himself to his country's friendship with Albania.lm/z/
