WASHINGTON -- U.S. President George Bush says that supervised independence was the best solution for Kosovo.

It has the best prospects of leading to peace in the region, said Bush, and expressed hope that the Serbian government "will realize this".

In a brief interview with Croatian national television in Washington, ahead of his visit to Zagreb, Bush said Kosovo "represented the last chapter in the break-up of the former Yugoslavia and an end to a very difficult period".

"Kosovo has a chance with supervised independence. I support this decision because I believe this is best for the region and there are greater prospects of peace," the U.S. president said.

"I hope the Serbian government will realize that the Serbs in Kosovo are treated with respect as a minority, and that it will in time help Kosovo separate, instead of trying to prevent its secession," Bush was quoted.
