United States officials never mentioned an exchange of territories between Serbia and Kosovo, Kosovo Democratic Alliance leder Kadri Veseli told Pristina-based Klan Kosovo TV.
He said there was a lot of speculation about that and the damage it inflicted on relations with the US. “That is not fair because the US never mentioned the option of dividing Kosovo or exchange territory,” said Veseli, who is running for prime minister. He did not want to say whether he prefers a Community of Serb Municipalities or a change of borders. “Why should Kosovo choose between the two worst scenarios? There will be no Republika Srpska (the Serb entity in Bosnia) in Kosovo,” Veseli said.
Veseli said that American officials asked for a 100 day suspension of the tariffs on Serbian goods, claiming that there is a decision to that effect in writing but that partners left him on his own. “They think I was harmed but the harmed themselves and Kosovo even more,” he said.
He said that he is not afraid of meeting Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.
