"As Kosovo approaches the tenth anniversary of its independence, we believe that the opportunity is at hand for such a genuine peace. The people of Kosovo are establishing the institutions of self-government. Last year a new administration was formed following free, fair, and peaceful democratic elections. A functioning, multi-ethnic democracy continues to strengthen in Kosovo, one that respects the rule of law and human rights of all. The UN Mission in Kosovo has been an important part of this achievement. But now it is time for leaders in Kosovo and Serbia to take their future into their own hands."
