Thaci says independence decision already made.

The leader of the Democratic Party of Kosovo (DPK) Hashim Thaci said the Kosovo status decision has been already made.

"The decision on Kosovo's independence is being discussed with the European Union and other international factors," Thaci said after the meeting with the US Under Secretary for Political Affairs Nicholas Burns.

According to Thaci, who is also a member of Pristina's negotiation team, Kosovo will become an independent state with sovereignty on its entire territory, and with a civil mission and NATO's military presence.

There will be no delay of Kosovo status settlement after the parliamentary elections in Serbia slated for January 21 next year, he added.

Kosovo needs order and peace, Thaci said, adding that the institutions and the citizens should unite in terms of "statehood activities".

During the visit to the United States, DPK leader met with senior officials of the US State Department, National Security Council and representatives of civil society.
