Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said on Thursday that the issue of Kosovo must not be left as a frozen conflict as it affects Serbia’s progress. But she also pointed to the pampering approach of the international community and the EU towards Pristina.

In a broadcast on Happy TV, Brnabic underlined that people must understand a frozen conflict is a frozen instability. We will not be able to use all of our potential and all the healthy basis we have and go as fast as we can if we have a frozen conflict.

She said that the United States asked Serbia to stop lobbying for withdrawals of Kosovo recognitions, which Belgrade openly refused. As long as they are lobbying for additional recognitions, it is fully fair play that we lobby for countries to withdraw that recognition, Brnabic pointed out.

The prime minister also recalled that everyone condemned the measures of Pristina, including the United States, adding that she is now closely watching how Pristina will fulfill its allegations that they will not abolish the additionally imposed tariffs.

She stated that she would like Pristina to be a little more reasonable, which would be good for the citizens of Albanian ethnicity in Kosovo and Metohija, but also for the whole region, but that, unfortunately, she has to talk with Ramush Haradinaj, who had been charged with the most heinous crimes, and was acquitted only because the witnesses were killed.

“We need to talk to him because of regional stability and our future. It is more important to us than to anyone else in the region to have regional stability,” Brnabic stressed.
