Kosovo’s Deputy Prime Minister and co-head of state delegation in talks with Serbia, Fatmir Limaj, says they asked the EU to establish a special court to deal with crimes which Serbia has committed in Kosovo during 1998-99 war.
Limaj and Kosovo delegation won on Tuesday visited Brussels and were received by the EU foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, told Pristina based KTV that Kosovo is interested to reach a final comprehensive agreement with Serbia. He said that also the EU agrees that the dialogue should continue based on a comprehensive agreement. According to Limaj Serbia is not interested to reach a final agreement with Kosovo. “There is no willingness from Serbian side, I don’t think they are ready to reach a final deal,” Limaj stated. He also said that one of the topics they have discussed with the EU officials is addressing the issue of the missing persons during the dialogue with Serbia. Almost 20 years after the end of war around 1400 people are still considered as missing in Kosovo. “We know and it is confirmed that Serbia possesses the files and documents of the locations of all massacres committed in Kosovo,” he said. Limaj promised that one of the topics in the dialogue with Serbia will be full reciprocity. “Every right that Serbs have in Kosovo should have also Albanians in Serbia,” Limaj stated. According to Limaj Kosovo will ask the EU to establish a special court for Serbs. “We will ask a war crimes court and not allow Serbia allegedly try war criminals. We want a special court with international judges to investigate all massacres which happened in Kosovo,” Limaj said.
