  President. − Ladies and gentlemen, we do not have much time, in fact only six minutes, as the Council has informed me that it will have to leave at 7.30 p.m. However, we have enough time to answer the next two questions.

President. − As they deal with the same subject, the following questions will be taken together:

Question No 10 by Mairead McGuinness (H-0095/08)

Subject: The EU perspective of the Western Balkans

Inevitably, the fate of the Western Balkans will be of particular interest to the current holder of the Council Presidency. Given recent developments in relation to the status of Kosovo, will the Council Presidency assume an active role in attempting to integrate further the countries of the Western Balkans into EU structures?

Question No 11 by Silvia-Adriana Ţicău (H-0106/08)

Subject: Development of relations between the EU and the Western Balkan countries

The Slovenian Presidency has indicated that one of its priorities is the development of relations between the EU and the Western Balkan countries. Can the Council set out the principal objectives regarding the development of future agreements between the EU and the Western Balkans?

Question No 12 by Dimitrios Papadimoulis (H-0119/08)

Subject: Role of the EU mission to Kosovo

The Prime Minister of Kosovo has recently stated that the declaration of independence is a matter of days away. The Russian Foreign Minister has linked the EU mission to Kosovo with a new UN Security Council resolution on the presence of the international community in Kosovo.

What is the mandate and the timetable for the EU’s mission to Kosovo? Is the Council expecting a new UN Security Council resolution to make any changes in relation to the presence of the international community in Kosovo?
