Columnist Enver Robelli writes that the statement of European Commissioner Johannes Hahn that possible land swap between Kosovo and Serbia could be discussed ahead of the 29 April Berlin summit of Western Balkans leaders, is not ‘coincidental’.
“Ahead of the summit called by German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, Hahn wants to dig out from the hole the idea of Kosovo’s division. Merkel is the staunchest and the most serious opponent of Kosovo’s partition. Hahn knows that the majority of Kosovo’s population are against partition of Kosovo. So are the majority of political parties. Assembly of Kosovo is also against. Majority of communities are also against, except for smugglers of goods and mafia bosses in the north of Kosovo. Majority of Kosovo media are against, except for paid parrots,” Robelli writes.
He says that following Hahn’s remarks for Washington Post, the government of Kosovo should cut off all communications with him because of his “pro-Serb” and “dangerous” policy. “There should be no talking to a politician whose mandate expires in few weeks’ time. Once he leaves the post of commissioner, Hahn can become advisor to Aleksandar Vucic. Kosovo should not allow to be humiliated and tortured by a second-class politician like Johannes Hahn, a former president of a casino conglomerate and a plagiarism suspect,” Robelli writes concluding: “Hahn can play poker in his former casinos but cannot gamble with Kosovo’s fate.”
