Kosovo asks ‘reciprocal rights’ for Serbian Albanians

The Kosovo parliament has approved a resolution demanding more rights for the ethnic Albanians who form local majorities in parts of the Presevo Valley of southern Serbia.

It demands “full reciprocity” for ethnic Albanians in Serbia for the rights that ethnic Serbs have obtained under an EU-led deal in northern Kosovo. MPs approved the resolution by 74 votes in favour and four against.

It calls for regional offices for displaced Albanians from southern Serbia to be set up in Pristina and Gjilan.

It also aims to improve the freedom of movement, educational rights and access to official documents for Albanians living in southern Serbia as well as the suspension of what it calls “discriminatory taxes”.
