Kosovo’s Vetevendosje leader Albin Kurti said on Friday that Serbia’s continued presence in the northern municipalities are a problem which his government will resolve with the local Serbs.

Kurti’s Vetevendosje (self-determination) party won the most votes at the recent parliamentary elections and is expected to become Kosovo’s next prime minister.  

“We have to be institutionally present in the north of Kosovo, serving the entire population whether Serbs or Albanians,” he is quoted as saying by Pristina media. “Kosovo institutions will also be present in in majority-Serb municipalities south of the Ibar river. Their presence there is not a problem, Serbia’s presence is,” Kurti said.  

The Serb List called the international community to condemn Kurti’s statements “announcing the illegal and violent takeover of Trepca and the uniting of the (Serb) north and (Albanian) south of Mitrovica which directly invokes war with unforeseeable consequences to peace in Kosovo and the entire Western Balkans”.

 Kurti said that the two parts of the Trepca mining complex have to unite, adding that he hopes the divided city of Mitrovica would do the same. “Pristina and our government did not invest in Trepca, Serbia did and that can’t be repeated,” he said.
