Balkans |  Kosovo accuses the United States and the European Union of tolerating Serbia

The Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, claimed that the representatives of the United States and the European Union are biased towards his country and show tolerance of the Serbian regime.

Corti, Associated Press (APRegarding the EU’s Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue Special Envoy Miroslav Lajcak and US Special Representative for the Western Balkans Gabriel Escobar, “they come to us with demands and demands from the other side.” Use his statements.

Serbian criminal gangs Kurti noted that the special police forces in northern Kosovo could not be “reduced” until they left the country or were arrested, and said “there could have been peace in Kosovo if there had been no orders for violence from Belgrade”. He said.

Kurti stressed that Western countries should not tolerate Serbia, which is the main problem of violence in the Western Balkans.

KosovoReferring to the extraordinary local elections held in April in municipalities in the north of the country, where mostly Serbs live, Kurti said: “We have been let down by international mediators and European facilitators.” He rated it.

He will need the international community’s help for fair competition, new mayors and a democratic race, Kurti said, “Since Belgrade ordered it, we cannot afford another process where Serb candidates will boycott a few days before the elections start.” He said.

The Serbian Union of Municipalities is a “Trojan horse” for Serbia that wants to make Kosovo dysfunctional

Kosovo’s First Deputy Prime Minister on European Integration, Development and Dialogue, Besnik Pislemi, said: “Serbia’s demand for the establishment of a federation of majority Serb municipalities in Kosovo is not to integrate local Serbs, but rather to divide Serbia by making the country unable to function as a ‘Trojan horse’,” he said. He intended it.”

Bislemi shared on his Twitter account about the “paperless” published by the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, “The creation of the Federation of Serbian Municipalities is not a goal in itself, but rather a ‘Serbian world’ coinciding with the territory of the former Yugoslavia. “Represents an important step towards the overarching goal.” made statements.

Bislemi warned that the union of Serbian municipalities would lead to the formation of a new Serbian Republic with the aim of territorial separation between Albanian and Serbian territories.

Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama reported that he had conveyed the draft they had prepared for the creation of a federation of Serb municipalities in Kosovo, where most Serbs live, to French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

The agreement establishing the Confederation of Serb Municipalities in Kosovo’s mostly Serb municipalities between Kosovo and Serbia was signed in 2013, mediated by the European Union, but has not been put into practice.

Tensions in northern Kosovo

On May 26, Kosovo Serbs protested against the election of Albanian mayors who won local elections on April 23 in the municipalities of Zvecan, Zubin Potok and Leposavić, where Serbs are concentrated in northern Kosovo.

As protests continued in the area, the Kosovo Police and NATO’s Kosovo Peacekeeping Force (KFOR) cordoned off municipal buildings with wire fences and increased personnel in the area.

There was a clash between the Kosovo police, who were sent to the area to protect the Albanian mayors, and the Kosovo Serbs.

Considering Kosovo, which unilaterally declared its independence in 2008, as its own territory, Serbia also decided to station its army on Kosovo’s borders.

Kosovo Serbs stated that they would continue their protests in front of the municipal building until their demands were met.

The Serbian administration says the elections, which were boycotted by Kosovo Serbs and had a turnout of 3 percent, were invalid.
