Dick Lugar, the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee who sponsored the NATO Freedom Consolidation Act of 2006, said that it is time for the United States to take the lead in urging its allies to bring new members into the Alliance. Georgia is currently in a so-called Intensified Dialogue with NATO and is hoping to progress soon to a Membership Action Plan. "Unfortunately, Georgia has not yet been granted a Membership Action Plan but nevertheless has made remarkable progress. This legislation will provide important incentives and assistance to the countries to continue the implementation of democratic, defense, and economic reforms," Senator Lugar said.

                    [post_content] => TIRANA, Nov. 20 - President Alfred Moisiu awarded Monday medals to all the victims of the July helicopter crash, including professor of economics Gramoz Pashko. Sander Baloi, Vangjel Condi, Demush Heba and Qemal Koni were awarded with the Eagle's Golden Medal while Pashko with Great Master medal. Pashko was being taken by helicopter, the official one who only hours before had taken the prime minister from another town to Tirana, to Italy after an accident following which he was in a comma. Pashko's son was also at the helicopter.  Moisiu said he felt obliged to respect the four pilots and medical staff who challenged weather and other technical difficulties to save a life. "The work of these people will remain a testimony of the human sacrifice," Moisiu said at the ceremony. It is believed that weather conditions were the cause of the helicopter crash, though results of investigation are still to be made public.

                    [post_content] => TIRANA, Nov. 17 - Ministers and officials from the European Union and the western Balkan countries held Friday a meeting on justice and home affairs in the Albanian capital. The European Union needs closer cooperation with the western Balkan nations if it is to better fight organized crimes such as trafficking in people and heroin, senior EU officials said. Ministers and officials from the EU and the western Balkans נAlbania, Bosnia, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia נpledged during a two-day meeting to work toward developing an integrated border management system to strengthen the fight against organized crime and terrorism. Organized crime is endemic throughout the region and in most of the other Balkan states. Finnish Interior Minister Kari Rajamaki told a news conference the western Balkans needed to strengthen their own regional cooperation, but that organized crime in the EU and in the western Balkans was closely connected, so "EU countries also need to deepen cooperation with the Western Balkan countries." Rajamaki, whose country holds the EU presidency, chaired the annual meeting on justice and home affairs between the EU and the countries נwhich all aspire to join the trade bloc. "The Balkan region is one of the key trafficking routes for heroin entering Europe from Asia," an EU statement said. It added that measures taken by EU member states were not enough to combat human trafficking and more had to be done. "It is difficult to influence the demand and supply for human trafficking with legislative measures. Therefore I believe raising awareness is crucial in order to end human trafficking," Finnish Justice Minister Leena Luhtanen said. All of the countries are negotiating pre-accession agreements with the EU. "This is a key region for the security of Europe," EU Justice and Home Affairs Commissioner Franco Frattini said. Participants said that the cooperation would be increased with the SECI, the southeastern European initiative center based in Bucharest, Romania that coordinates the fight of this region in the fight against organized crime, human, weapon and drug trafficking. The EU senior officials said that the cooperation they would strengthen with the western Balkans could very likely follow that they had with the Baltic countries, which ad proved to be successful.

                    [post_content] => TIRANA, Nov. 20 - Albanian parliament passed Monday a statement of its foreign policy commission which called for a quick solution to the future status of Kosova. The statement also appealed to ethnic Albanians there to avoid violence. The statement was unanimously approved by the parliament. It welcomed a final status that would reflect the Kosova citizens' aspirations and free will for an independent, democratic, multiethnic and European state. Though Albania has been the strongest supporter of independence for Kosova, where ethnic Albanians make up 90 percent of its population, it has always insisted there should be no border change turning down voices of the will to create a greater Albania. The U.N.'s special envoy for Kosova has delayed issuing a report on the province's future until after Serbia holds elections in January, but Tirana says that could threaten regional stability. It was initially hoped the talks would end and the status would be resolved by the end of this year. Serbia wants to keep at least some control over the province, and last month approved a new constitution declaring Kosova an integral part of its territory. Albania has said Serbia's constitutional claim over Kosova is unacceptable. Since the end of the war between Serb military forces and separatists in the southern province in 1999, Kosova has been run by a U.N. administration and patrolled by NATO peacekeepers. The previous week Prime Minister Sali Berisha said that postponing a resolution of Kosova's future status could threaten regional stability. Berisha said that "Further postponement of Kosovo's final status at this delicate moment complicates the situation, stability in Kosovo and the region." Albania has said Serbia's new constitutional claim over Kosovo was unacceptable, and Berisha dismissed the Serbian referendum again Tuesday, telling reporters that "independent, free and democratic Kosovo is the condition for peace and stability" in both the province and the region. Berisha also appealed to the six-nation Contact Group participating in status talks, as well as the European Union, to rule out any change to Kosovo's borders, which he said "would encourage adventurers and demons of all Balkan nationalisms to ... turn the Balkans back to its darkest times."

Statement:
נIn attentively observing the latest developments to determine the final status of Kosovo;
נCommending the uninterrupted commitment of the USA and the EU to find a settlement to the issue of Kosovo, and the latest resolution of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, which seeks the determination of the final status, in compliance with the will of the people of Kosovo;
נIn support of the stands of the Contact Group and the statements, according to which, the constitutional referendum and elections in Serbia and the issue of the status of Kosovo are independent of one another;
נCommending and strongly supporting the activity of the Chief  Negotiator Marti Ahtissari to conclude and submit the document on the final status of Kosovo to the United Nations Organization, within the foreseen deadline and with no further delay;
נHighly appreciating the progress achieved in reaching standards as a result of the active work of the Government of Kosovo in cooperation with UNMIK, as well as the major role played by the Unity Group in the process of negotiations and in the preservation of political-institutional and public cohesion in this exceptionally important phase of  determining the status;
the Committee of Foreign Policy of the Assembly of Albania,
נReiterates the will of the Assembly of Albania to define the final status, reflecting the free aspirations and will of the citizens of Kosovo for an independent, democratic and European state;
Commends, with special  appreciation the wise stands and the democratic conduct of the institutions, political parties and public opinion in Kosovo, and invites the citizens of Kosovo, preserving the spirit of cooperation with the international players, to avoid every provocation and act of violence,  something that is only in the interests of those individuals who do not want the correct and final solution of the issue of the status of Kosovo.
נReconfirms the conviction that the swift solution to the final status and the strict respecting of the criteria of  non-partitioning of Kosovo would exert a positive influence on a stable and long term settlement, while any further postponement or effort to partition Kosovo would have consequences on the security and stability of the entire region and further a-field.
