    Foreign Minister Milo, in an in exclusive interview with ATA said that the situation in Kosova is very grave and the military machine of Milosevic is not putting an end to its atrocities.

    "Milosevic's provocations have, for several times, also reached Albania's territory and intend to involve it in the conflict, but we have responded to this situation with calm and self-restraint, avoiding these traps erected by Belgrade," said Milo.

    Commenting the political developments in Kosova and the problems of its political class, Milo said: "The Albanian political factor is showing its own traditional shortcomings, that in the most delicate moments is does not know to orientate itself, to be unified. It is now facing more difficult days than several months ago, which has caused that in the western chancelleries credibility in this policy is waning. We will support the negotiating team of Rugova for as long as it is considered a kernel which can be joined by other political elements, such as those of the Kosova Liberation Army (KLA)".

    Referring to the political status of Kosova, Milo said that this is in the hands of the political leadership of the Kosova Albanians and that the Albanian government has often given its own advise in this respect, but the Albanian political factor of Kosova should as soon as possible formulate a clear proposal for the political status of Kosova, so that the International Community, too, is clear about the options of the Albanians.

    As to the temporary suspension of the diplomatic activity of the U.S. embassy in Tirana, Milo said: "We have official guarantee that the reduction of work in this embassy is aimed only at protecting the lives of the U.S. citizens in Albania and that this measure was taken after anonymous warnings of possible acts of terrorism. Such warnings have also troubled our embassies in various countries of the world, confirming the possibility of violent acts against the U.S. embassy and Albania".

    Milo said that the level of relations between Albania and the U.S. continues to be very good and the U.S. fully supports Albania in its efforts to stabilise the situation at home, resolve the Kosova issue and further develop democracy.

    "No U.S. project for Albania has been suspended. A concrete aid is also being given in the preparations for the International Conference on Albania, expected to be held in Tirana in the last ten days of October," said Milo, stressing that the Albanian government is taking measures to secure all the foreign embassies in Tirana.

    Referring to the law on the visa regime for the foreign citizens coming to Albania Milo said:

    "The irresponsible, emotional and subjective policy of Berisha lifted without motive the visa regime for all foreigners, also for those coming from countries of no economic benefit for Albania. As a result of this uncontrolled flood of foreigners, suspected elements and commodities took shelter in Albania."

    Milo said that the change of this law is urgent, therefore the Ministry of Institutional Reform is preparing a new draft-law on the regime of checking entry to Albania.

    "Our position on the occurring incidents was also endorsed by the Arab countries (also on the extradition of the Egyptian citizens) whose ambassadors were met at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by the head of the department covering the Arabian countries.

    The ambassadors confirmed the support of the countries they represent for the Albanian government stands and the wish to further develop the relations between Albania and the Arabian countries which make up a considerable potential," said Milo. /pas/lm/
