President of Kosovo, Hashim Thaci, said at the summit of European countries Foreign Affairs Parliamentary Committees taking place in Pristina that the EU often lacks vision and leadership and thus risks becoming a bureaucratic institution detached from its citizens. “One of those speaking strongly about Brussels lacking vision is me but there is no other alternative for us nor are we seeking a different one,” Thaci said. In his word, Thaci called on Russia to recognise independence of Kosovo urging it not to view Kosovo through “Serbia’s lenses.” He also said that Kosovo plans to apply this year for membership to the Council of Europe and UNESCO. “I call on countries that have supported us last year to do so again this year,” Thaci said. Speaking about border demarcation agreement with Montenegro, Thaci said he hoped the Assembly would ratify the bill in the coming days.
