Haradinaj: Serbia Offered to Recognize Kosovo in Exchange for Territory

Published

on

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, backed by Russia, has made us an obscene offer: Serbia will recognize Kosovo if we give it part of our territory, said Kosovan Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj in a Washington Post Op-Ed.

“We will not violate our constitution, give up our sovereignty and destroy our territorial integrity just to have Serbia recognize something that is already a fact,” Haradinaj said, adding that Serbia wants to create an ‘ethnically pure state’.

Haradinaj accused Serbia of violating international agreements, including the Brussels agreement. The prime minister added that Serbia is blocking Kosovo from its EU accession, lobbying against the visa liberalization of Kosovo.

He asserts that Serbia has long abused the Kosovo market, and violated the CEFTA terms.

“Enough is enough — in the name of fair trade, national security and our vital national interests, my government has imposed a 100 percent tariff on all Serbian goods. These measures will remain in place until Serbia stops its efforts to undermine our sovereignty and begins honoring its commitments,” Haradinaj said in his Op-Ed.

The prime minister of Kosovo said that the tariffs will remain in force, until Serbia seizes to violate the sovereignty of Kosovo.
