EU, including Visegrad 4, struggle for unity on Kosovo
The European Union has found difficulty achieving a common position on the future status of Kosovo. Meeting in Brussels at the end of the week the 27 member states looked likely to delay a decision until the spring. Even the 4 members of the Visegrad group, Poland, Hungary the Czech Republic and Slovakia had different opinions over Kosovo when they met in the Czech Republic earlier in the week. Slovakia said it would have great difficulty recognising a unilateral declaration of inependence by Kosovo while Hungary said Kosovo's independence could not be delayed. Russia is also against full independence for Kosovo.
