Kosovo president Hashim Thaci in an interview with the German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung talks on war, NATO’s intervention against Serbian targets in 1999 and his relations with Serbian president 20 years after the war, who at that time was minister of Information to Slobodan Milosevic’s Government, whereas Thaci was political representative of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA).
Thaci told Süddeutsche Zeitung, that this is a difficult relation, adding that both Kosovo and Serbia need to have an open channel of communication. “Because of the dialogue many ugly things have been prevented. But I don’t feel any pleasure doing the dialogue,” he said. “We both know where are we from. But this is not an obstacle to work on restoring peace,” he said. Talking on Kosovo-Serbia dialogue, Thaci said that a peace agreement between the two countries has no alternative warning that the status-quo, would destabilise the region. Asked whether change of border would be part of a final agreement, Thaci said: “Our goal is reaching a comprehensive agreement, which would solve all open issues between Kosovo and Serbia. But so far nothing has been brought to the negotiation tbale. There are no maps. This issue has been exaggerated by media,” Thaci told Süddeutsche Zeitung.
