President Hashim Thaci said that he will not get involved in any negotiation process with Serbia facilitated by EU’s special representative Miroslav Lajcak, reminding that his country has not recognized Kosovo’s independence and the Slovakian diplomat voted against Kosovo’s membership in UNESCO.

Thaci said he believes the leading role of US in dialogue and expressed readiness to attend summits called by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron.

“I fully believe the United States with conclude this process successfully, as they concluded many agreements. Without a US leading role Kosovo-Serbia problem cannot be solved,” he said.

Thaci also implied that caretaker prime minister Albin Kurti is negotiating with the EU special representative on dialogue. “For three months now, Mr. Kurti has been in contact with Lajcak,” Thaci said adding that he does not know “how far have gone” Kurti, Lajcak and EU’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell.

According to Thaci Kosovo will face two negotiators coming from EU non-recognizers and reminded that Lajcak in his capacity as Slovakian foreign minister voted against Kosovo’s membership in UNESCO. “Personally, as a President I will answer invitations to attend summits organized by Merkel or Macron, but I am not willing to participate negotiation process facilitated by Lajcak,” Thaci said. /GazetaExpress/
