Kosovo Parliament Speaker Kadri Veseli is reported to have sent a letter to the governments of the US, Great Britain, France, Germany and Italy about alleged war crimes committed by Serbia in Kosovo.

The letter demanded a resolution to condemn the crimes against humanity committed during the war in the late 1990s.

Veseli makes mention of a number of massacres and other crimes, saying that the international community has recognized the fact that the Milosevic regime committed violence against the Kosovo Albanians, forcing about a million of them out of Kosovo and displacing another half a million in Kosovo.

“In total about 90 percent of Albanians became refugees or displaced persons and 13,535 were killed including 1,230 children with babies and little children among them,” the letter said.

Veseli sent a similar letter to the US Congress a week earlier.
