Kosovo's President Hashim Thaci said that it was possible some political mistakes were made, some political compromises as well, but not a single violation of the international law and that indictments against him were the price for Kosovo's freedom, the Beta news agency reported on Monday.
Ahead of his trip to The Hague to face the announced war crime charges by the Specialised Prosecutors'' for Kosovo, Thaci told the Albanian TV Top Channel that he would take all responsibility in line with civil, Constitutional and legal obligations.
"I know the creation of Specialised Chambers was a historic injustice," Thaci said.
He added Kosovo's Parliament decision to (accept that) was right as Pristina needed confidence in the Western world, "especially in our allies, such as the US, NATO and the European Union, who helped us conquering our freedom.
"Kosovo is a victim. Genocide and ethnic cleansing happened in Kosovo, but we face this new situation, paying the price for freedom," Thaci said
.He added that "our war was clean… based on a peaceful movement, one of the most successful in the world which fought against the genocidal apparatus, ethnic cleansing and at the same time against (Serbia'sSerbia's) regime which committed massacres and genocide like in Srebrenica and elsewhere."
Earlier, Thaci said that if the Specialised Court confirmed the indictment, he would resign as Kosovo's President.
