Germany’s stance that Kosovo’s independence is a done thing, as well as opposition to border adjustments or division, are hypocritical and arrogant, the Left MP said.
“These messages about the ‘finished thing’ are hypocritical. For 20 years, the German governments have worked one after the other to split Yugoslavia along ethnic lines, despite EU and UN recommendations not to do so,” said German parliamentarian Zaklin Nastic.
“And when, after nearly 30 years of instability, Serbs and Kosovo citizens are close to agreeing on how to live next to each other, the German government says the time to redraw the maps is over. This attitude is arrogant and ridiculous,” she told Belgrade based daily Vecernje Novosti.
The Left Party recently supported Czech President Milos Zeman’s proposal to void recognition of Kosovo’s independence, but the member of the party with 69 MPs in the 709-member parliament says there is currently little hope that the Bundestag will void the so-called Kosovo, reports Vecernje Novosti.
“It was definitely a mistake that Germany among the first recognized the independence of Kosovo. It was a violation of Serbian and international law, and opposing to UN Security Council Resolution 1244,” Nastic added, recalling that the situation in Kosovo has deteriorated significantly since recognition.
