Belgrade: Kosovo’s Kurti talk about reciprocity euphemism for rejecting dialogue Izvor: N1

Marko Djuric, the head of Serbia’s Government Office for Kosovo, said that the leader of the Self-Determination movement and most likely Kosovo’s next Prime Minister Albin Kurti’s idea on the reciprocity with Belgrade was just a euphemism for rejecting the further talks on the normalisation of relations, the Beta news agency reported on Thursday.

In an interview with N1 held in Pristina, Kurti said his government would lift the 100 percent import tariffs on goods from Serbia that stopped the dialogue after introduced last November if Belgrade made some moves which he considered discriminative.

Kurti told N1’ Pressing political hard talk that his government would replace the tariffs through reciprocity, what, he said, was “the principle for healthy constructive relations”.

“We will draw up a list of everything needed for reciprocity with Belgrade,” he said. According to him, Serbia has to do something in other fields before the tariffs are revoked and only then should dialogue be prepared. “We do not have the luxury of allowing another dialogue to fail,” he said.

Kosovo Serb political representatives decided in a meeting with Serbian government Office for Kosovo chief Marko Djuric that they will not be part of a Kosovo government or coalition which does not accept the legitimate will of the Serb people. Djuric said after the meeting that the Kosovo Serbs will not agree to allow Albin Kurti or anyone else to decide who will represent them in the government, adding that they are prepared to walk out of all institutions if fresh pressure is exerted on Serb institutions.

However, Djuric said that “in that way, Kurti announced he would abolish possibility for selling Serb goods in Kosovo even with the paid taxes,” Djuric said in a written statement.

“Belgrade will continue to give the dialogue a chance, but it is difficult to have any productive talks with a man whose ideology is made of hatred and political anachronism,” Djuric said.
