WikiLeaks shows senior Serbian privately told Washington and the EU, the Kosovo government will never gain full control of the disputed territory – and insisted on a way for separation.
“Failure to act soon means losing northern Kosovo and will reopen the Pandora’s box of ethnic conflict that defined the 1990s,” wrote U.S. Ambassador in Kosovo, ChristopherDell, transemton WikiLeaksSipas Dell “is the right time to give years ended in the north direction and change the dynamic of a hardening partition between the north and the rest of Kosovo … The current situation is vulnerable and deteriorating. ”
Serbian leaders ikan U.S. ambassador in Belgrade that “Serbs in northern Kosovo will never accept Albanian government.”
In cables say that the West is not a public figure for Kosovo Serb negotiator Borko Stefanovic, but adviser to Serbian President Boris Tadic on foreign policy, Jovan Ratkovic.
In a cable to the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade has said that Ratkovic U.S. Ambassador Mary Warlick said that “Belgrade is not intended to change the reality on the ground for Kosovar Albanians, but also attempts to change reality for Serbs means destabilization”.
“These people have never lived with Albanians, have never felt part of Kosovo and will not accept rule by Pristina,” said Ratkovic U.S. Ambassador Mary Warlick.

U.S. officials in Belgrade and Pristina repeatedly questioned European determination and staying power in the preservation of territorial integrity and resisting Serbian pressure, while lending to Belgrade using scare tactics effectively Europeans. EU PorCooperi PhilipGordon said, Assistant U.S. Secretary of State for Europe, in Stockholm last year that “decentralization in Kosovo will not succeed,” broadcasts “Our Presevo”
“If it is to succeed, it must make critical issues of the north, but that progress will only come if Brussels applies equal pressure on Belgrade and Pristina, rather than acceding to Belgrade’s political demands and alienating counterparts their Kosovo. So far the jury is still out on whether the EU will show the necessary level of political leadership.
“Intensified problems we predict as a consequence of Belgrade’s intransigence – especially those surrounding Kosovo’s north where Serb extremists have shown their willingness to constant confrontation – could easily lead some poor Europeans to withdraw their commitments over time and settle for a split-result “.
