RESOLUTION 343   of the National Committee for the Liberation of Yugoslavia entitled "The temporary ban on the return of colonists to their former place of residence" of March 5, 1945. About the resoultion H. Roth writes:

These twenty or so lines had a crucial, even the most decisive, influence on much of what had happened in Kosovo within the communist Yugoslavia after the end of World War II.... The decision talks of a temporary ban but in practice it had the effect of a lasting and permanent ban... Why mentioning Macedonia, Srem, Vojvodina? It was necessary to soften the decision to ban a return to Kosovo and Metohia using the excuse of the widespread and general needs of Yugoslavia as a whole... Who was mostly affected ? Serbs who have been expelled from Kosovo during the war by Italians and Alabnians (fighting on the side of the Axis).
   With this Resolution, Kosovo was surrendered to then already nummerically superior Albanian national minority which was boosted by those Albanians whom the occupier had brought to Kosovo and who neither returned to Albania of their own accord nor by a decision or resolution of the Yugoslav authorities.
