Kosovo’s President Hashim Thaci’s remark that he will never talk about an exchange of territories or a division of Kosovo, confirms that Albanians are interested only in the territory, his Serbia's counterpart has said on Tuesday.
Thaci said on Monday that he neither had nor he ever would talk about the division of Kosovo or the exchange of territories and that the issue poped out “to feel the pulse” of Kosovo, Serbia and the region.
"The exchange of territories was a false news,” Thaci told Pristina’s “Klan Kosova” television.
Commenting on the statement, Serbia's President Aleksandar Vucic said that “it seems he (Thaci) cares only about territories, and that the people have never been in his focus.”
Vucic added that the Albanians always told him to leave the territory issue aside “because it’s Kosovo’s, lets talk about your people.”
“No kidding! Let us talk a bit about your interest in territories and then you will see that’s the only thing you care about,” Vucic told Serbia’s state RTS television from Düsseldorf.
He added that the essence was in the way how the dialogue with “Kosovo’s mentors, tutors, those who let them go independent, those who bombed Serbia” would go on.
“That’s our job to see can we get anything since all we have done from 1999 to 2011 was bad. Terribly bad… Not only then, many generations have made catastrophic mistakes which we are now paying a high price for,” Vucic said.
He added he hoped Serbia would get something good out of it and that he was looking forward to hearing some good news from the EU Summit on Western Balkans in Sofia this month.
