Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti said on Friday that the Pristina officials who signed the letters of intent to restore rail and road traffic with Serbia did not have his government’s permission to do so.
The letter of intent was signed earlier on Friday by officials from Belgrade and Pristina in the presence of the presidents of Kosovo and Serbia and US special envoy Ambassador Richard Grenell.
“The two agreements were signed in Munich today by officials empowered by former Minister Pal Lekaj and the negotiations were completed before this government took office which means that those civil servants did not get permission from the new government to negotiate or sign the agreement. The text of the agreements was not presented to the public or the government. There were various informal proposals,” Kurti wrote on his Facebook profile.
He added that links and upgrades of infrastructure standards are necessary for the development of our countries and the European vision for regional cooperation and good neighbor relations but warned that the process has to be transparent. He said that the relevant ministries are committed to treating this as a priority.
