Zulfaj: Kurti remained consistent in his opposition to the CSM formation
Advisor to Prime Minister Albin Kurti, Jeton Zulfaj expressed his surprise because, he says, there is more pressure in Kosovo to accept the Community of Serb-majority Municipalities than in Serbia to recognize Kosovo.
In his post on Facebook, he wrote that Kurti's government is the biggest obstacle to the CSM formation, Lajmi reports.
Zulfaj even accuses the opposition and other actors outside the government of being ready to make concessions to Serbia.
"In Kosovo, there is more potential for compromises and concessions towards Serbia outside the government than in Serbia," Zulfaj writes.
He says that Kosovo, even if Serbia separates from Russia, cannot just pay the price of the agreement.
"Why is there more pressure in Kosovo for the CSM formation than in Serbia for the recognition of Kosovo's independence? On the eve of the 15th birthday of our country, it is good to stop for a moment and think about why we have found ourselves in such a delicate position that our friends and allies are pressuring us to establish a single-national association", Zulfaj writes.
In Kosovo, he states, with over 93 percent Albanians, there is not a single Albanian government institution or agency, because Kosovo has been declared a multi-ethnic society.
"Consequently, the constitution of Kosovo did not envisage a single Albanian institution and cannot foresee and accept a single Serbian, Roma, Bosnian, Turkish, Gorani, Ashkali, Egyptian institution. As long as the current opposition was in power, the greatest resistance to a single-national association was in the opposition, which was best demonstrated in the popular demonstrations called by 'Self-Determination'. Now, when the former government is in the opposition, the greatest resistance to the CSM is provided by the government," Zulfaj points out.
He notes that, as a consequence, when the Western partners and friends of Kosovo go to Serbia and discuss Kosovo, "Vucic seems the most open, as the mildest radical among the ultra radicals".
"When they come to Kosovo and talk about Serbia, the government and the prime minister have the most determined position towards Serbia and against a single national association. Here we also find an explanation of the American and European approach. In Kosovo, they see more potential for compromises and concessions towards Serbia outside the government than in Serbia. That's why they put more pressure on Kosovo than on Serbia," Zulfaj concludes.
The separation of Serbia from the Kremlin (very doubtful in any case) is good for Serbia itself, there is no need for Kosovo to pay for it.
