UNHCR remains concerned about Kosovo Serbs, Roma and Albanians in a minority situation. Given their fragile security situation and the serious limitations to enjoying their fundamental human rights, UNHCR’s position is that they should continue to be considered at risk of persecution, and should continue to benefit from international protection in countries of asylum. Return of these minorities should take place on a strictly voluntary basis, based on fully informed individual decisions. Their forced return to other parts of Serbia and Montenegro can not be considered as appropriate.”
