Hashim Thaci: Correction of border exaggerated by media
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.
