Several news websites cover today’s conference organized by the Kosovo Democratic Institute on Kosovo Assembly’s role in the Pristina-Belgrade talks. Ahmet Isufi, head of the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo’s parliamentary group, said the Assembly must monitor the process of dialogue. “We have seen the dialogue deviate and Serbia has accepted only the agreement that suited them, and rejected agreements that benefited Kosovo. Serbia has also obstructed the implementation of the agreements that have been reached,” Isufi said. He also recalled a resolution adopted in the Kosovo Assembly that obliges the participants of dialogue to report to the Assembly. “But this has not happened. We want a new platform that will make the reporting mandatory,” he said. Isufi said that President Hashim Thaci’s idea for a unity team for talks with Belgrade has yet to be discussed. Glauk Konjufca, head of Vetevendosje’s parliamentary group, said the Kosovo government had “a closed agenda” on dialogue with Serbia. “The process of dialogue was initiated by the two previous governments which perceived this as a process where the government should have full monopoly. I would like the Assembly to be at the helm of the process … The whole process lacked transparency and it became common practice despite the fact that we asked the Prime Minister to report to the Assembly. The Assembly should run the dialogue,” Konjufca said. Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK) MP, Elmi Recica, said they asked the dialogue facilitators to insist more on implementation of agreements by the Serbian side. He said there is an agreement and memorandum of understanding to inform the Kosovo Assembly on the progress of dialogue. “The parliament needs to be involved and informed of every agreement,” Recica said.
