Letter: Battle over Kosovo

Sir: Alex McLaren (letter, 20 April) must lead an extremely narrow existence. I am not particularly adventurous, but I have spent pleasant holidays in Yugoslavia, and was fortunate enough last year to visit Albania for one day. I remember with affection and concern the people I met there. What can the future hold for them now? I have also met both Serbs and Kosovars in this country and discussed with them the situation in the Balkans.

To suggest that this is just a private dispute in which we should not intervene is as disingenuous as the police refusing to do anything about an assault on a spouse because "it is only a domestic".
