Kosovo’s outgoing Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj told the local Gazeta Express newspaper on Friday that Serbia requested 950 square kilometres of Kosovo’s territory in the talks on the normalisation of relations between Pristina and Belgrade, the Beta news agency reported.

Haradinaj, whose party is in a campaign ahead of the early general elections in Kosovo due on October 6, also told the Gazeta Express newspaper that Serbia's President Aleksandar Vucic was still advocating the division and complaining inside different political circles that Kosovo did not agree to such a deal.

“Serbia precisely asked for 950 square kilometres. But the issue is not on the table any more, the things moved forward,” Haradinaj told the paper.

He added that “they (the Serbs) are playing good-bad cop role. Vucic is good, while (Foreign Minister Ivica) Dacic is a bad cop. They work in coordination while we don't. (President Hashim) Thaci plays a good cop, but against his country. I’m a bad cop, but I protect Kosovo,” Haradinaj said.
