PAX CHRISTI WARNS KOSOVO COULD BECOME BOSNIA

          ROME (CWNews.com) - The Italian branch of Pax Christi, a Catholic international peace movement, last week called upon the international community to act on the situation in the Yugoslavian region of Kosovo, which they warned could become another Bosnia.

          News coming from Kosovo shows that the situation is heavily deteriorating, said Pax Christi, and because the international community was slow to act there is the danger that the consequences might be as tragic as in Bosnia. Pax Christi also expressed its fear that the Italian government will lift support for the just solution of Serbian-Albanian clashes in Kosovo.

          The peace group called upon Italy to clearly state its stance on the defense of the human rights, which should be higher than economical interests. Pax Christi said it believes that the solution for the region should not be postponed, because it would support the arrogance of the strong and cause a repeat of ethnic cleansing. Pax Christi was founded as a movement for the reconciliation between France and Germany after World War II.
