N. Macedonian President: Kosovo issue could lead to domino effect Izvor: N1

Any changes to borders, regarding the Kosovo issue, must not lead to the domino effect in the region, Macedonian President Stevo Pendarovski told Radio Free Europe.

“Kosovo, with its unresolved international status, has been at our border for many years. A restart of talks regarding its status is announced for June 27,” Pendarovski said in an interview.

He noted that the entire region would feel either good or bad effect of the solution to the Kosovo issue.

“I'm not saying that border-changes can't be the solution to the Kosovo issue, but that solution mustn't lead to the domino effect in the region and it mustn't threaten our borders,” Pendarovski said.

Should such a solution be acceptable to both Belgrade and Pristina, the North Macedonian President said they are asking the international community for guarantees that borders of other countries would not be questioned.

In his opinion, it is very important that the conflict is not frozen but resolved so that the entire region could continue its path towards the EU, where it also belongs institutionally wise.

Pendarovski added he had some reservations regarding the timeframe for the solution, because the US as the key player, is entering the pre-election period.
