Kosovo’s Kurti: I believe Vucic blackmails Serb List Izvor: N1

Albin Kurti, the most likely Kosovo’s new Prime Minister, said on Tuesday that Belgrade had been using local Serbs against Pristina and added there was no need for a coalition with the Serb List, but that he would find a way to have them in a government to honour the Constitution, the FoNet news agency reported.

Speaking to the Albanian Report TV, Kurti said that “Serbia doesn’t want Kosovo’s Serbs, they just use them to prevent Kosovo from going forward.”

“When I was in prison (1997-2001, first in Lipljan in Kosovo, then in Pozarevac, in eastern Serbia), they treated Kosovo Serbs as guards and called them names pejorative for Albanians. I believe that (Serbia’s President Aleksandar) Vucic blackmails the Serb List,” Kurti said.

He added that “we won’t depend on the Serb List, but we’ll meet the Constitutional obligations.”

Serb List, heavily supported by Belgrade, overwhelmingly won Kosovo’s October 6 general elections in areas mostly populated by local Serbs, amid claims of alleged pressure from local and Belgrade’s official on people to vote for the List.
