Gerald Knaus from the European Initiative for Stability has asked the foreign ministers to schedule an extraordinary session for Kosovo.

Through a post on Twitter, he said that it is madness to stop Kosovo's progress towards membership in the Council of Europe. 

"Foreign ministers in Strasbourg should set a new date for an extraordinary meeting within weeks, to vote on Kosovo's application as soon as it moves on to the issue of the Association of municipalities with a Serbian majority. This would send a clear signal to Serbia that Kosovo's citizenship is stable and maintains the full support of European democracies," he wrote. 

Knaus also said that it is fatal for foreign ministers if today, on May 17, they ignore "Ahtisaari's formula for peace, the recommendation of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe", he wrote.

Knaus also mentioned the proposal of the Government of Kosovo, which he said is very good, for the issue of the Association related to the membership in the Council.

The agenda for the meeting on May 16 and 17 left Kosovo out of the agenda. KiE spokesman Daniel Holtgen said that the issue of Kosovo is not on the agenda of the Council of Ministers and that at the moment it is not known when it might be.
