Kosovo’s Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs, Anton Berisha, replied to Serbia’s Prime Minister Ana Brnabic. He said Serbian PM should forget blackmails. According to him, Brnabic’s conditioning continuance of the dialogue with removal of the tax, in the mildest spoken language is continuance of Serbia’s arrogance. “In fact, it is also an inertia of the events of the recent years, when Kosovo became a bridge to help Serbia advance in its negotiations with the EU, while we gained some vain signatures without any practical impact neither in relation with the EU nor with implementation by Serbia. In the contrary Serbia’s aggressiveness towards Kosovo state only increased.
The old and new history showed that no dialogue with Serbia succeeded or brought any results because it continues to treat Albanians as an inferior nation.
We cannot wait eternally transformation of Serbian society into a European one, based on universal human values.
What we should do is continue dialogue with the U.S., Germany, Italy, Great Britain, France and many other democratic countries, as well as with the neighboring countries such as Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia, Croatia, in order to gain in bilateral relations, benefit from friendship with these countries in political, economic, military, cultural and many other vital aspects.
Serbia can continue with its behaviors as if it is the center of the world or the region, be it as result of mentality or its role given to it by Russia, but from now on, it should forget its conditioning when it comes to Kosovo.
It can dialogue only under equal circumstances of mutual respect, and by having it clear that dialogue happens only between two countries,” he wrote.
