BIRN Kosovo Staff Briefs Foreign Media

BIRN Kosovo has welcomed over 50 foreign journalists, who have been covering the latest developments in Kosovo.

Jeta Xharra, BIRN Kosovo director, was interviewed by BBC Online [http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/7133515.stm]and the Polish Magazine Babel [http://www.cafebabel.com/pl/article.asp?T=A&Id=2923]about the situation in Kosovo and the post- negotiation process. BIRN Kosovo editor, Krenar Gashi was interviewed by Deutsche Welle Radio and France 24 TV.

International media attention was prompted by the December 10 deadline for a Troika of international mediators to report back to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon about four months of talks on Kosovo’s status. The Troika-led negotiations between Serbia and Kosovar Albanian representatives had earlier ended in failure.

Although the approaching deadline created some tension in Kosovo, the situation remained calmed.

Among other international media briefed by the BIRN Kosovo office during their stay were: BBC News, The New York Times, The Scotsman, The Wall Street Journal, The Independent, 24 Hours, ISN Geneva, EUP Berlin, Bergens daily and Stavanger Aftenblad.
