Macedonia insists on mutually acceptable solution for Kosovo

Macedonian President Branko Crvenkovski said on Monday that Macedonia insists that the solution for the Kosovo status issue has to be "mutually acceptable" by Belgrade and Pristina.

"We encourage both sides to reach a mutually acceptable solution under the auspices of the international community," Crvenkovski told Stefan Lehne, director for western Balkan in the Council of Europe, who is on a visit to Macedonia.

News reaching here from Skopje said Crvenkovski and Lehne agreed that the demarcation of the border between Macedonia and Kosovo should be completed before the decision is made on the final status of Kosovo.

Kosovo has been under UN administration since 1999 when NATO troops forced Serbian forces to withdraw from that province.
