    TIRANE, June 24 (ata) - By A Gjakova: The chairman of the Foreign Policy Parliamentary Commission, Sabri Godo said to ATA on Thursday that he intended to propose to the parliament the holding of a Solemn Session on the liberation of Kosova, which Godo considered as a great event of the Albanian nation.

    Godo said he was convinced that Kosova would, by all means win its independence. "I think so," he said, "because it is already decided that Kosova will be under protectorate for a year according to a resolution of the Security Council, but I am convinced that it will take a longer time to guarantee Kosova's protection from any eventual Serb aggression."

    The European community is being more and more convinced that Kosova must, by all means, secede from Serbia, otherwise human rights will not be guaranteed and no peace and stability will exist in the Balkans.

    "Milosevic is now considered an enemy to peace and stability. I have faith in the future and say that Kosova has won," said Godo. /led/xh/
