Prime Minister Edi Rama reacted after Serbia announced a day of mourning on November 27 "for the tragic events" in Kosovo.
Rama is clearly opposed to official Belgrade's stance towards the terrorist attack in the North of Kosovo, where the policeman Afrim Bunjaku was killed .
He declares that the mourning officially announced in Belgrade for the members of the armed group who were annihilated by the security forces of the Republic of Kosovo is the worst signal that Serbia could give to the region and the Euro-Atlantic community!
According to the Albanian Prime Minister, Belgrade, with this declaration of blackout that has nothing to do with the 21st century, is fanning the flames of an armed conflict like never before since 1999!
" The mourning officially announced in Belgrade for the members of the armed group that were annihilated by the security forces of the Republic of Kosovo, after that group took the life of a police officer, is the worst signal that Serbia could give to the region and Euro-Atlantic community! While it should have opened a serious investigation into the members of that criminal group, their connections with arms traffickers and other individuals or entities, in Serbia or elsewhere, potentially engaged in creating an armed movement in the North of Kosovo, Belgrade, with this black proclamation that has nothing to do with the 21st century, is fanning the flames of an armed conflict like never before since 1999!
This is not only unjustifiable and unacceptable, but condemnable with all the force of words and instruments available to the Euro-Atlantic community!", declares Rama .
He further emphasizes that "this is the moment when Serbia must make up its mind clearly and decisively whether it will be with Europe and the democratic world of the XXI century or with the shadow of itself at the end of the XX century; with the values ??and principles of the European Union and the Euro-Atlantic community or with the ghosts and crimes of its inglorious past of the 90s; with the European tomorrow of its innocent children or with the guilty yesterday of murderous and suicidal nationalism!".
Rama has an appeal to the international community regarding the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue .
“Ky është momenti kur Bashkimi Europian dhe Shtetet e Bashkuara duhet ta ndajnë qartë e prerë mendjen nëse do ta ngrenë në nivelin më të lartë alarmin demokratik për ta ndalur përshkallëzimin e konfliktit në Veriun e Kosovës, i cili ka hyrë në fazën e vet më të rrezikshme qysh prej vitit 1999 apo do të vazhdojnë t’i mbajnë Dialogun për Normalizim dhe angazhimin e KFOR-it në të njëjtin nivel krejt të pamjaftueshëm tanimë!
Kjo e dyta sot është krejt e pakëshillueshme, por nesër mund të bëhet krejt e pajustifikueshme, sepse nesër mund të jetë vonë edhe për të parën! Prandaj apeli i Shqipërisë për miqtë e mëdhenj e aleatët strategjikë të Ballkanit Perëndimor është: Veprimin e sotëm, mos e lini për nesër!”, thotë Rama.
Likewise, he emphasizes that "this is the moment when Kosovo must also reflect very seriously and make up its mind clearly, whether it will continue on the course of action disconnected from its irreplaceable friends and its indisputable allies or act in harmony and understanding with the Euro-Atlantic community, to achieve the greatest goal in history after the victory of the war and the declaration of independence, the final recognition as a member state of this community!
All other paths except this second one are paths of illusions with painful endings, which take Kosovo away from the main goal, empty it of the spirit of the future and turn it into the most absurd way a hostage of peace in the middle of Europe, since it has emerge victorious from the war to become a free European country ".
