Ramush Haradinaj says Serbia should “delete Kosovo from the Constitution.” Otherwise, said the leader of the opposition Alliance for the Future of Kosovo – Kosovo will “reciprocally add one third of the Serb land to its map.”
Kosovo is Serbia’s southern province where ethnic Albanians unilaterally declared independence in 2008. Serbia considers this a violation of its territorial integrity and sovereignty, while the preamble of the country’s Constitution states that Kosovo is an integral part of Serbia.
In other comments made for TV Rrokum – during a show called Rrokum Rroll – Haradinaj said Serbia’s agenda was to “mock Kosovo” while “the EU, and especially the US, should be told that Albanians are not a nation someone can play with and mock.”
Another part of the same agenda, he continued, was his detention in France, on a Serbian war crimes warrant.
“Europe is doing nothing on this subject. I am grateful to Berlin, which took a clear position regarding my case, but when it comes to Brussels, this is not fair, because the EU is seen in the Balkans as unable to convince sides to make difficult decisions. America should have reacted and put Serbia in its place,” said Haradinaj.
On the other hand, the security situation in North Mitrovica continues to be unstable. Violence and incidents continued during the weekend. A person was killed on Friday evening in his bar in the Bosnian Quarter. This happened two days after the murder taken place in the Filip Visnjic Street in North Mitrovica.
The mayor of the northern part of the town, Goran Rakic demands from international institutions to boost security measures in the northern part of Mitrovica.
“Situation in Kosovo is very complicated. We are going through a delicate process. There are several unstable areas in the town. The Bosnian Quarter is one of them. We have been complaining about the fact that we’re not happy with the security situation in several parts of the city for months now, and we have asked EULEX, KFOR and Kosovo Police to increase the number of patrols and boost security measures in the town”, Rakic said.
