Senior French government official, Laurence Boone, said in Skopje, North Macedonia, that the Franco-German proposal for Kosovo is a non-paper, and its content should not be publicly disclosed for now.
“A non-paper is a non-paper and it content should not be disclosed,” the French Secretary of State for European Affairs told a joint press conference with North Macedonian Prime Minister Dimitar Kovacevski.
This was Boone’s reply to a journalist who said he was not asking her about the content of the non-paper but whether it is “based on the political decision on bombing Yugoslavia or on international law.”
On the other hand, the German government’s special emissary for Balkan affairs, Manuel Sarazzin, says there is no French-German plan for Kosovo but rather that the plan is all European. He also believes that various versions of the plan that have appeared in the media are false.
Sarazzin refuses to discuss the plan’s details and says that “the content of the plan and the discussions about it are useful and will help Kosovo and Serbia to expedite EU accession process”.
