Foreign policy commentator of Belgrade-based daily Politika and military analyst Miroslav Lazanski told RTS if Washington pressures Pristina to move towards compromise solution then a way out of the current situation is possible. According to him Europe showed infirmity regarding Kosovo. Lazanski added that Americans publicly say one thing, while the other thing is being done behind the scene.
Speaking for RTS morning program Lazanski assessed the situation in the north of Kosovo as complex saying, “Pristina did not spend the time sleeping.”
“They sent some two trucks with food and their special forces to secure it, so they can say that they sent a humanitarian convoy under armed escort,” Lazanski noted. “You cannot stop such convoy,” he opined, “they have good mentors and sponsors who are thinking few steps ahead (…).”
According to him there is a set of action Belgrade can undertake, some public, some semi-public and everything must be done to prevent that citizens of Serbia in Kosovo face humanitarian disaster.
He also noted there is no way out of the current stalemate in the short term. The long-term way out would be clear if Washington pressures Pristina to move towards compromise solution.
“It is clear for a long time who is blocking any kind of talks. It is difficult for Paris, Berlin and Brussels to ask anything from Belgrade in a situation where there are anti-civilization tariffs, CEFTA agreement violated and flow of goods forbidden,” Lazanski underlined.
