Kurti: The main problem in the Balkans is the non-confrontation of Vuiqi dhe and Serbia with the criminal past – Latest News
Prime Minister Albin Kurti commented on the meeting of the three neighboring countries on the minishengen, which is now being called “Open Balkans”.
Kurti said that the main problem in the Western Balkans is the failure of the Serbian leader to deal with the past.
According to him, the common market should mean democratization and the rule of law in our countries, but he emphasizes that this is impossible as long as Serbia does not accept the criminal past.
“We as the Republic of Kosovo consider that the main problem in the Western Balkans is the failure of the Serbian leader to deal with the past. Respectively with the criminal past of Serbia which caused four wars in the last decade of the 20th century. The common market must be accompanied by dealing with the past, with the democratization of our countries and with the rule of law. “Otherwise we will have more events that do not remain in memory than processes and structures that change the lives of citizens for the better,” he said.
Commenting on the change of name from minishengen to “Open Balkans”, Kurti said that he is not enthusiastic about this change, as this name means openness to Russian and Chinese influences.
“In particular, I can not say that I am enthusiastic about the name ‘Open Balkans’ because being there the leader of Serbia who does not face the past of his country and himself, ‘Open Balkans’ looks more like the Balkans open to influences from the East, especially from the Russian Federation and China, as well as the Open Balkans to autocracy, corruption, war criminals, as we know continue to be massively free not only in Serbia, but not a few of them in power “, he said.
Kurti assured that the relations between Kosovo and Albania are fraternal, regardless of the reports of the heads of state.
“Kosovo and Albania will have and should have good and better relations. It does not belong to either the Prime Minister of Kosovo or that of Albania that our two countries, which are of the same nation, have bad relations. “Kosovo and Albania, the citizens of both countries have fraternal relations, while politicians, be they prime ministers like Edi Rama and my work remains only to represent this will and interest of the citizens”, he said.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Kurti was asked by journalists about the possible dismissal of Foreign Minister Donika Gërvalla, who briefly said “no”. / insider
