Kosovo has no pretentions to expand its territory, or give up parts of its territory, says Kosovo Speaker of Parliament, Kadri Veseli. He said the country needs unity for dialogue with Serbia and criticised the European Union for non-liberlisation of visas for Kosovo citizens, adding however that the EU remains Kosovo’s partner in its path towards Euro-Atlantic integrations.
The Speaker of Parliament and chairman of the biggest parliamentarian political party, PDK, Kadri Veseli, called on opposition parties of LDK and Vetevendosje not to refuse cooperation when it comes to issues of national interest. In an interview with news agency KosovaPress, Veseli urged the opposition to join the Government’s team in dialogue with Belgrade, and urged Serbia to recognise Kosovo’s independence. Talking on the land swap idea with Serbia, Veseli said that Kosovo has no territorial pretentions but also will not give away parts of its territory. He is convinced that recognition of Kosovo from Serbia is inevitable. Talking on President Hashim Thaci’s role in dialogue with Serbia, Veseli said that the President should respect its constitutional role. Opposition parties are claiming that the President Thaci has no legitimacy to lead the dialogue with Serbia.
