“The aggressive and often openly anti-Serbian rhetoric of the Albanian elites in Pristina is creating a negative political atmosphere detrimental to our attempt to normalize relations between us. Serbia has been working hard to make this happen, but I’m afraid that the failure to implement the agreement and Pristina’s often chauvinistic rhetoric are putting the very future of this dialogue on the line,” Marko Djuric said.
He added that by paying lip service to their desire to normalize ties with Belgrade, Pristina puts in question the fundamental rights of the Kosovo
Serbs and even wants to deprive them of their rights to education and health care. “This means that some Albanian leaders in Kosovo see talks as a continuation of war by different means. This is a war mentality that must be forgotten as soon as possible,” Djuric emphasized.
“As for the EU, it should do more than just providing premises for the talks and being a silent witness to them.” The EU has assumed responsibility for the implementation of the [Brussels] accords and their unbiased interpretation.
“Even though the majority of EU countries have recognized the so-called independence of Kosovo, we expect an unprejudiced interpretation of these accords and an absence of any attempts to use this dialogue as an instrument of achieving their own geopolitical ends by means of using pressure against Serbia,” Marko Djuric said in conclusion.
