Albanian Foreign Minister Olta Xhaka has criticized Serbia’s position, which is defending the barricades in northern Kosovo.
Shaka said that the barricades are made by criminal gangs, noting that they artificially followed the crisis and increased tension.
In a joint statement on Facebook, Çaçka said Albania stands by Kosovo.
Stressing that the barricades in the north of the country are reminiscent of the dark days of the 1990s, the Foreign Minister said: “This is not the time to make military threats or carry out unacceptable attacks on the Kosovo Police, KFOR and Polex Police. It is time for dialogue and cooperation. This dangerous confrontation must end The criminals must be brought to justice.”
Stressing that they stand by Kosovo in this difficult period, and urging the Serbian authorities to stop trying to justify the barricades in northern Kosovo and the criminal gangs that refuse to remove them, Čačka said, “Playing with fire is not good for the future of our children.”
In response to Čačka’s remarks, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacka said that in Čačka’s remarks, “Korti did not mention that he was not fulfilling the obligations of the Brussels Agreement.”
According to the Tanjug agency, Dacic said that according to the agreement, Kosovo should create a federation of Serbian municipalities, not send Albanian law enforcement officers to the north of the country, and “not arrest Serbs just because they are Serbs.”
