Vetevendosje leader Albin Kurti said that President of Kosovo Hashim Thaci has ‘sabotaged’ himself by showing ‘excessive servility’ for an agreement with Serbia.
In a Facebook post, Kurti recalls that it’s been four months since Thaci replied to the U.S. President Donald Trump pointing out to the letter’s third paragraph: “Let me give you my personal assurances that as Kosovo’s President I will be ready and willing to make compromises necessary to reach a comprehensive and balanced settlement…”
Kurti writes of Thaci: “So, he is both ready and willing for necessary compromises! Not only ready, but willing as well. Not just any compromise, but necessary compromises. With this readiness and will there can be no dialogue and agreement, but only (personal) bargain for (state’s) capitulation. When you are overly flexible towards Serbia, it is no longer flexibility but submission and surrender. As a result, there can be no dialogue with such prior readiness and will for necessary compromises. Extremists cannot dialogue. And an extremist is not only someone who a priori doesn’t want dialogue but also someone who a priori wants an agreement. So, an extremist is someone who accept everything by jumping to agreement without negotiations at all. With all his extremism, the President of Kosovo sabotaged himself. Because with this exaggerated servility no one will like you.”
Kurti concludes by saying that Thaci’s stance in favour of Presevo Valley joining Kosovo, expressed many a times during press conferences in Pristina, was noticeably absent from the letter he sent to President Trump back in January.
