The President, Vjosa Osmani said that Kosovo today has fully implemented the agreements signed in Brussels, which Serbia has ignored and continues to not implement.
In a Facebook post, Osmani stressed that reciprocity in the issue of license plates, signed by both parties in Brussels, can not be seen as a tense and unilateral action, but an action towards the implementation of agreements which should also require vet EU.
“Serbia is the one that has acted unilaterally since 2016 and in violation of the Brussels agreements, not Kosovo,” said the president.
He further added that illegal Serbian structures, financed and receiving orders from the state of Serbia, are taking actions not only in violation of the Brussels agreements, but also endangering the security of citizens and the stability of the region.
“Moreover, Serbia, according to the unchanged logic of the past, is also using Serbian state institutions to threaten our country,” said Osmani.
He further said that no threat from Serbia stops our determination to implement the law, in accordance with our international obligations, for the benefit of all citizens of the Republic, regardless of ethnicity.
“The decision of the Government of Kosovo to implement reciprocity with Serbia on vehicle license plates was taken as a result of the conclusion of the agreements of 2011 and 2016 on the freedom of movement of citizens between the two countries.
Consequently, the decision ensures equal treatment and free movement of citizens of both countries.
“The decision has been accepted and is being strictly implemented at all border points, with the exception of two points in the north, in which local Serbs are being abused by the Serbian Government and illegal structures there,” Osmani continued.
The President has called on the European Union to put pressure on the Serbian government to immediately stop provocations against Kosovo and the misuse for political purposes of Kosovo Serb citizens.
“Serbia’s destabilizing policy in Kosovo and the region and their hegemonic goals for the so-called ‘Serbian world’ are a return to their logic of the ’90s, which has brought many victims to our region,” Osmani said in the end. Telegraph.
