Opposition parties in Kosovo published Wednesday a joint press release when they set the conditions on continuation of Kosovo-Serbia dialogue. According to opposition the Parliament should be tasked to set the agenda of talks with Belgrade and not the President of Kosovo who currently leads EU-facilitated dialogue with Serbia in Brussels.
Leaders of opposition parties, Isa Mustafa of the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK), and Albin Kurti of Vetevendosje, met Wednesday and came out with a proposal on dialogue with Serbia. The opposition leaders want the President of Kosovo Hashim Thaci to step out of the dialogue process with Serbia and proposed the Parliament to set the topics which should be discussed with Belgrade. They also opposed Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj’s idea on calling an international conference on solving Kosovo-Serbia disputes. In a joint press release the LDK and Vetevendosje say that the dialogue should be headed by a credible Government representing majority in Parliament. They criticised President Thaci of violating country’s Constitution, by negotiating territory of Kosovo during the EU-facilitated dialogue with Serbia.
The opposition leaders have also criticised Prime Minister Haradinaj who proposed calling an international conference. Mustafa and Kurti say that this is unnecessary and unacceptable. According to them, this would open the way for Russia and China interfere in the process.
