If Kurti manages this, then he is someone that could be a reasonable alternative for the so-called war coalition, because if someone seeks change of the borders in Balkans, he is promoter of conflict,¨ is written in the reaction of this Office.
The communique further informed that the Office will continue to support the Serbian List, “because they are the only ones that could keep Serbs’ peace in Kosovo.”
