Announcing the concept of a meeting with the Serbian delegation in Paris on July 1, Kosovo President Hashim Thaci has once again “poked Belgrade in the eye,” Belgrade based daily Vecernje Novosti write today.
Daily write that he announced he would present at the talks hosted by French President Emamnuel Macron the idea that Presevo, Bujanovac and Medvedja join the “territory of the Republic of Kosovo.” It would be, he considered, “correcting the historical injustice,” Novosti reports.
“I see that it is necessary to correct the border without affecting one centimeter of the territory of the Republic of Kosovo. I am for correction, not for exchange, and I will present this idea in Paris,” Thaci said.
Such an approach on the part of the Kosovo side will hardly contribute to getting the dialogue out of deadlock, which is the main goal of the announced meeting in the French capital, agreed in Berlin on April 29, which ended without concrete results, Novoposti assesses.
Daily also reports that Serbian Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin said, reacting to Thaci’s plan, that Serbia 1999 had been pushed out of Kosovo by (NATO’s) strategic bombers and missiles, not by the strength of ”broken (KLA) terrorists. ”
