Kosovo’s former chief negotiator in technical dialogue with Serbia, Edita Tahiri, has strongly opposed the statement of the EU spokeswoman, Maja Kocijancic, who told media in Belgrade that the issue of Trepca should be addressed during Pristina-Belgrade dialogue in Brussels.
“I strongly oppose this scandalous and war waging statement of the EU High Representative Federica Mogherini’s Office. This shows that Mrs. Mogherini is siding with Serbia, by losing her credibility as unbiased facilitator of Dialogue in Brussels. This is not an EU stance, but only of some officials who are in the wrong path,” Tahiri said.
“I wonder whose interests Mogherini is serving, because it is obvious it is not serving neither to the EU nor protecting the EU principles on Western Balkans,” Tahiri said. She said that it is alarming to see Mogherini’s Office violating position of the EU members which have already recognised Kosovo’s independence. “Mogherini and Kocijancic should not forget that 23 EU members have recognised the state of Kosovo, and only five have not recognised it. It is alarming that Mogherini’s office is not respecting the state of the EU leader countries, such as Germany, France, Great Britain, who are against change of borders between Kosovo and Serbia,” online media Kallxo.com reports.
