Kosovo PM Hoti assures MPs nothing happening behind curtains in Dialogue with Serbia
Kosovo prime minister, Avdullah Hoti, reporting
Friday before Members of Parliament said that Kosovo has entered a new phase of
dialogue for mutual recognition and nothing else, assuring MPs that nothing is
happening behind curtains in the EU-facilitated dialogue with Serbia.
“It is an expression commonly used in the
courtroom: I swear to tell the truth, and nothing but the truth! I am telling
you on Kosovo’s position on the dialogue. I cannot comment Serbia’s position.
We have entered a process on recognition and there is nothing beyond that.
Nothing is happening behind curtains, do not raise new theories or hypothesis.
The dialogue will be led by the Prime Minister. I have appointed a state
coordinator on dialogue who is coordinating this process,” Hoti told MPs.
PM Hoti visited last week Brussels when he
met Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic in the EU-facilitated dialogue. On
Thursday, the State Coordinator on Dialogue, Skender Hyseni, met Director of
Serbian Government Office for Kosovo Marko Djuric to discuss on the issue of
missing persons, one of the topics opened by Hoti and Vucic last week. PM Hoti answering
criticism of opposition parties and analysts said Thursday that there will be
no technical dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia insisting that the two
countries will discuss on a comprehensive legally binding agreement on mutual
recognition which would lead to normalisation of relations between the two
countries. /Gazeta Express/
