Report on Kosovo is ready and the UN Secretary General, Antonio Gutters would present it to the Security Council on February 7, Serbian national broadcaster, RTS writes on its webpage.
The report notes the murder of Oliver Ivanovic as one of the most difficult events in the last three months. Gutters also criticizes authorities in Pristina, saying “there are setbacks” in relation to the Special Court for KLA crimes and that only 498 people returned to Kosovo in 2017, which is the lowest number since 2000, RTS reports.
According to RTS, analysts assess that the UN report is a clear warning to Pristina to start implementing duties it has taken over.
UN SG also said that the murder of Serb leader from the north “caused shock and outrage”, and called for a swift identification of those responsible and to bring them before justice. He also assessed as “disappointing” recent attempts of some of the MPs to abrogate the Law on Special Court and called upon Kosovo leaders to show full commitment to justice and the rule of law.
Centre for Foreign Policy Director, Aleksandra Jovanovic told RTS, the report is a logical continuation of criticism authorities in Pristina are hearing for some time already. According to her, Pristina does not deliver on international commitments, something that Western countries’ diplomats already pointed out.
“A honeymoon between Pristina and its partners, that have supported it fully until now, is over. It seems, at this moment Pristina is in a very serious and difficult international position, in a sense that the international community would not give up on requests Pristina took it upon itself to fulfil them,” Joksimovic said.
“Either they cannot read through the end what was written in the report, or they think it is yet another usual Secretary General report. The fact is what is written in the report is as such, and there should be no lagging behind what is considered to be a home work of the Kosovo institutions,” political analyst Ramush Tahiri said.
