Dangereous Days Ahead

William Montgomery: Moving To The End Game In Kosovo

The nerveousness in the Balkans I have written about earlier concerns not the least how the extremely complex issue of Kosovo will be resolved during the next year or two.

There are many people at great distance from the realities having very simplified views on that matter. Closer to reality, things look less than easy, to put it very mildly.

A person that have followed these issues for a long time is Bill Montgomery. He has served as US Ambassador to both Croatia and Serbia-Montenegro, and was prior to that dealing with Bosnia peace implementation during my days in that function.

Today he lives on the Dalmatian coast and writes a regular column that appears in key papers across the region.

His latest contribution to the debate concerns Kosovo. It's worth reading.

We are heading for difficult and potentionally even dangereous days.
