Ramush Haradinaj, the Prime Minister of Kosovo, said on Tuesday that an agreement between Belgrade and Pristina which would include the revision of borders would mean going back to tragedies, while President Hashim Thaci insisted that was the only way for an agreement with Belgrade, the Beta news agency reported.

Thaci told reporters that an agreement on normalisation of relations with Serbia could only be achieved if it included correction of the borders.

Speaking after the government session and only hours after Thaci’s news conference, Haradinaj reiterated that any deal with Belgrade involving border changes would be a step backwards.

Although both being members of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) during the 1998-1999 war against Belgrade military and police, the two leaders now belong to different political organisations with Thaci being the at the helm of the Democratic Party of Kosovo (DPK), while Haradinaj heads the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo (AAK).

The two have been at odds for quite a while, having different views on correction of borders as a possible solution to normalisation of relations between Belgrade and Pristina.

Thaci’s support for leading the dialogue with Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vucic is shrinking in Pristina with the opposition saying he is not authorised to negotiate on behalf of Kosovo.
