Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj warned against changes to borders on Tuesday, calling them a dangerous experiment.
“Corrections to borders are a dangerous experiment and we have to be careful about that,” Haradinaj told a media conference following a meeting of his cabinet commenting demands by ethnic Albanian political leaders from southern Serbia.
“Whenever border issues are raised, it’s uncertain what the possible tragedies could be and who the outcome will benefit,” he warned.
Haradinaj said his government would continue to pay attention to the interests of the people in the Presevo valley, adding that his duty is to keeping Kosovo’s territory and borders secure in line with the constitution. “Kosovo cannot allow itself this luxury after all the tragedies it suffered,” the prime minister said.
Presevo valley ethnic Albanian political leaders met with President Hashim Thaci and expressed the desire for the Kosovo parliament to adopt a resolution calling for parts of southern Serbia with large Albanian populations to be annexed to Kosovo.
