Ahtisaari Presents

As anticipated, special envoy Martii Ahtisaari presented his plan to the Contact Group today.  A copy of the report is rumored to have been leaked out and supposedly will be printed in the local papers tomorrow in Kosovo.  The "blueprint" is supposed to center around two issues: Kosovo's right to a future and the protection of minority rights.  It seems that the word "independence" has been left out of the proposal but still Kosovo would be allowed access to international organizations and the possibility of having some sort of security forces.
