Germany and France urged Kosovo’s junior coalition partner – LDK to reconsider its initiative on no-confidence vote in Albin Kurti’s Government at the time Kosovo is facing coronavirus crisis.

German Ambassador to Kosovo, Christian Heldt, n a Tweet on Tuesday said Germany and France have issued a joint demarche to Deputy Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti stepping in for LDK chairman Isa Mustafa to voice concerns of both capitals and to reconsider no-confidence motion in Albin Kurti’s Government. The initiative s done without support of other representatives of QUINT – USA, UK and Italy.

“France and Germany Ambassadors joint demarche to Deputy PM Avdullah Hoti stepping in for chairman Isa Mustafa to voice concerns of both capitals. France and Germany stay at the side of Kosovo people in crisis. Invite LDK to reconsider no-confidence vote and maintain trusted and stable gov to face challenges,” Heldt said in a statement posted in Twitter.

Last week junior coalition partner – the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) filed a no-confidence motion in Albin Kurti’s Government after the latter sacked minister of Interior, Agim Veliu, after disagreements over coronavirus measures. Veliu is senior member of the LDK. The motion of no-confidence is expected to be voted this week in Parliament. /GazetaExpress/
