Kosovo's President Hashim Thaci denied the outgoing Prime Minister Albin Kurti's claims that Pristina and Belgrade had an agreement on the exchange of territories but said his dream was that Presevo, Bujanovac and Medvedja, three municipalities in southern Serbia with a majority of ethnic Albanians, join Kosovo, the KoSSev website reported on Friday.

 He said he was convinced that the US would encourage 'a final agreement' with Belgrade.

"I dream about Presevo, Medvedja and Bujanovac becoming a part of Kosovo's territorial integrity without any compromise," Thaci told TV Klan Kosova, adding there were no talks or agreements that would include the exchange those three municipalities for a part of northern Kosovo with a local Serb majority.

Serbia’s Office for Kosovo chief Marko Djuric said Thaci could dream about Tahiti or Jamaica within Kosovo, but that would never happen, as wouldn’t his dream about Bujanovac, Presevo and Medvedja.

 "Whoever speaks about the exchange (of territories) does that for internal use, since that has never been on the agenda anywhere, let alone in Washington," Thaci told the TV.

He described Kurti's accusations that he made a secret deal with Belgrade as rumours and said that what happened in Washington was "a show of goodwill to resume the dialogue" on the normalisation of relations between Belgrade and Pristina.
