Sir: Robin Cook has agreed to bow to European pressure and isolate Serbia.

We are constantly told how the majority of the population in Kosovo are Albanian. That means the Serb population is the minority. The Serbs are now to be isolated, surrounded by Croatia and Albania, historical enemies.

The Serb population was decimated during the Second World War by the Croat Ustashe. Now they are to be diplomatically punished yet again, for managing what might be called terrorism in their own country. Albania clearly has territorial aims in Kosovo. Arms are flowing in from Albania.

Serbia was the only Balkan territory that refused to ally with the Nazis and it was surrounded by Nazi puppet states. Will it now find itself in a similar hopeless situation? What right does the EU have to instigate what might become an unstoppable persecution of Serb civilians?
