The President of Kosovo, Fyuza Osmani, stated that the Serb military presence on the territory of Kosovo ended on 12 June 1999.
Osmani spoke before the deputies in the Kosovo Council about the latest developments and the security situation in the north of his country.
Fyuza Osmani said that Serbia made its territorial claims to Kosovo by financing and supporting illegal criminal structures.
Osmani said that criminal gangs in the north cannot suppress the desire of Kosovo citizens, including Serbs, to live in their homeland:
“We are all witnesses of Serbia’s constant threat to Kosovo. This threat, which has reached the point of aggression, has recently been expressed in the hegemonic ideas of the deployment of Serb forces in Kosovo. However, Serbia and its leader (Alexander) Vucic know very well that the military presence Serb territory in Kosovo came to an end on June 12, 1999. In 1999, NATO forces broke the back of the Serb hegemonic idea of “Kosovo without Albania.” Their goal was genocide.
Kosovo’s institutions cannot abandon the rule of law across the country, “although the gangs in the north don’t like that,” Osmani stressed that Kosovo has never had such an active, purposeful and coordinated foreign policy.
Noting that this foreign policy only focuses on Kosovo’s interests, but that this hinders some in Serbia and abroad, Osmani said, “The time of border traders is definitely over. The difficulties of foreign policy are, of course, incalculable, because mistakes were made on a massive scale.” We now need to repair these damages step by step, with patience and a clear vision.” He said.
Osmani explained that this year he held meetings with 44 heads of state, 46 prime ministers, many heads of parliament and representatives of institutions.
