Hashim Thaci says he is not surprised by the European Commissions report stating that “the Serbian government is creating parallel bodies in Kosovo”.
According to the Kosovo Albanian government in Priština prime minister, the same report also states that the Kosovo government does not have control “of the entire territory”.
Thaci said that he is content with the report, as it mentions that the “Kosovo government is upset by the negative occurrences which Belgrade is instigating”.
“We presented our dissatisfaction to Washington and Brussels. I am glad that the report on the Kosovo government’s progress shows this dissatisfaction which he have presented to international officials, which confirms the destructive role of Belgrade,” said he.
The European Commission is expected to publish its annual report on the progress of European integration in the Western Balkans on Wednesday.
Thaci said in Prizren that a “fight against smuggling in that (northern) part of Kosovo is being led without compromise” and that the Priština government is will continue to work with international officials, “especially now that an EU office has opened in the north”.
He went on to “promise” that “the negative occurrences in the north will be eliminated”.
“For the first time in the history of Kosovo, the report on progress and the feasibility study support the clear European perspective of the Republic of Kosovo. This was achieved as a result of the good administration of the Kosovo government and the effective implementation of laws and fight against corruption and organized crime without compromise,” Thaci was quoted.
