The American Council for Kosovo Calls on All Americans:
Tell Your Senators and Congressman Today: Please Oppose Congressional Resolutions Urging Forcible and Illegal Detachment of Kosovo and Metohija from Democratic
It is anticipated that Congress may soon consider two similar non-binding resolutions endorsing an independent Kosovo. (In the Senate, S. Res 135, and in the House of Representatives H. Res. 36 (see below)). While these resolutions would not have the force of law, their passage would be important political endorsement of a misguided U.S. State Department and United Nations policy, which is in desperate need of support as the one-sided and discredited Ahtisaari plan faces collapse in the Security Council.
Since democratic Serbia will not agree to amputation of 15 percent of its territory, these resolutions effectively demand that such a separation be imposed on Serbia in violation of the U.N. Charter, the Helsinki Final Act, Security Council Resolution 1244 of 1999, and Serbias own constitution, which, adopted with overwhelming public approval, defines Kosovo and Metohija as an integral part of Serbia.
The American Council for Kosovo urgently calls on you: Please contact your Senators and Congressman today to request respectfully but firmly that they oppose these misguided and counterproductive resolutions. Please note the following links and suggested messages. (We suggest e-mail as the best way for an immediate impact, but phone calls or hard copy letters can also be used.)
