Kurti in Dubrovnik: To implement the normalization agreement

Kosovo and Serbia have an agreement for the normalization of relations that they must implement, said the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, on June 9, at the "European Croatia: Retrospective and Perspective" conference in Dubrovnik.

Kurti added that Kosovo "must face the violent extremists, the ultra-nationalists, the right-wingers who believe in the 'Serbian world' and look at it with the Russian world... these are people who admire Milosevic or Putin", he emphasized.

The United States of America (US) and the European Union (EU) have previously called on Kurti to remove mayors from municipal facilities in northern municipalities and the special police units that helped place them in those facilities. .

The Prime Minister of Kosovo said that his country "needs the rule of law and a date for elections". He added that in the meantime, Kosovo may reduce the presence of special police units if "violent extremists" stop the riots.

"I think this is the way forward, together with the intensive dialogue for the implementation of the agreement, because we have an agreement that we must implement", said Kurti.

In March, Kosovo and Serbia agreed to implement the EU agreement on the normalization of relations, which would "de facto" bring mutual recognition, but Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic refused to sign it.

"This is a great achievement of the EU. We have reached a situation where Kosovo and Serbia finally have an agreement for normalization", added Kurti.

The Prime Minister of Kosovo said in Dubrovnik that "the European Union is the most important project of peace and prosperity since the Second World War" and that he joined the dialogue with Serbia because it was "organized by the European Union, which facilitates the talks".

In the latest unrest in Kosovo, at the end of May, dozens of NATO peacekeepers and Serb protesters from northern Kosovo were injured.

The riots occurred after the Kosovo authorities placed mayors, ethnic Albanians, in municipal offices.

The mayors of the municipalities were elected based on the participation of only 3.5 percent, as the majority of Serbs in that region boycotted the local elections./ REL
