Chapter Summary

The solution envisaged in the Proposal for the future status of Kosovo is a complex one. Any solution for the future status of Kosovo has to balance the interests of Serbia in safeguarding its sovereignty and territorial integrity with the human rights of the people of Kosovo. The restrictions imposed upon the conduct of foreign relations by the Proposal are limited. Kosovo will have the right to negotiate and conclude international agreements and the right to seek membership in international organizations. The Proposal establishes a detailed minority regime which, in substance, exceeds the ones established under the peace treaties after the First World War although the approach is identical. Article 3 of the Proposal refers to national or ethnic, cultural, linguistic, or religious groups "traditionally present on the territory of Kosovo". The solution for the future status of Kosovo may reflect realities.
