Agreement between Belgrade and Prishina cannot be reached if the Serbian side proceeds from the position that “and it should get something.” This was announced on Wednesday night by the new Prime Minister of unrecognized Kosovo, Albin Kurti.
“The approach of the Serbian president Vučić that the Serbs should get something from Kosovo cannot be the starting point in solving the problem. With this approach, I don’t see that we can find a solution, but together with Western states we can create a context where it will be possible to find a solution, “said Kurti, adding that” Serbia, in fact, never owned Kosovo, and during the Milosevic regime lost it. ”
Kurti commented on the statement in Belgrade. The head of the Office of Kosovo and Metohija under the Cabinet of Serbia, Marco Djurić, said that Kurti only wants to “surrender Serbia”, which will never happen. “Kurti, with his own statements, proved that he does not want any agreement with Serbia, does not want real negotiations, the only thing he wants is the humiliating surrender of Serbia,” said Djurić. The politician noted that the surrender of Serbia “without any doubt want individual foreign mentors” Pristina.
Earlier in his keynote address in parliament, the leader of the radical Self-Determination Albin Kurti said he was ready to engage in dialogue with Belgrade. He also promised that his government would “punish war crimes and aggression,” in connection with which a special law would be passed, and a lawsuit would be sent against Serbia on charges of “genocide” demanding “compensation for military damage.” The new prime minister also intends to “prepare the Kosovo society for joining NATO.”
The Serbian Autonomous Region of Kosovo and Metohija unilaterally declared independence in February 2008. In 2010, the independence of the region was recognized by the UN International Court of Justice. Currently, the Republic of Kosovo, according to Serbia, was recognized by 93 countries, 95 were not recognized, and five more abstained. More than 60 countries, including Russia, Israel, India, China, and also five EU member states, are against Kosovo’s recognition.
