Two key recommendations from ICG's latest report:
(a) modify aspects of the Ahtisaari plan, by creating a Special Envoy for Minorities, and setting a two-year moratorium before Kosovo can apply for UN membership; and/or
(b) adopt a resolution which endorses Ahtisaari’s Proposal but not his Report.
If there are no alternatives to the Ahtisaari proposal, then why tweak it? Right now Kosovo needs all the support it can get. Creating solutions for the sake of battered egos is not responsible diplomacy. At any event, after the people of Kosovo, it will be the Europeans who will have to deal with the consequences of solutions less than the best possible.
