Prime Minister Edi Rama has commented on the decision to go against a declaration of the EU's foreign policy, regarding the situation of Kosovo and Serbia.
In a press conference held in Rome with the Italian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Antonio Tajani, the head of the government said that the opposition to the statement made by Borrel on September 19, is related to the fact that that position does not reflect the problems created in north in recent days.
" Our position for the first time in opposition to an EU foreign policy statement. This position is related to the fact that the EU statement is a statement which does not in itself have a problem, as it addresses everything previously said by Borrell, regarding the obligations of Kosovo, but it does not correspond to the reality of the last days.
We cannot align with the EU without seeing a second statement that addresses the issue of the last few days. Where a dramatic development has taken place. A Kosovo police officer was killed by a criminal group that was invested.
This is unacceptable for us. Punishable. Non-European and because it is the worst signal that Serbia could give at this moment.
EU to raise the alarm at the highest level. To use all available instruments to return the right message to this completely unacceptable message that comes from the declaration of national mourning in Belgrade. Until there is a second statement, to fairly set a judgment for the last days, we will not align with the first statement.
At this point, our line is 100 percent of the EU, but it is the moment to loudly condemn what happened in the north of Kosovo and what happened in Belgrade ," said Rama.
