The head of the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo, Ramush Haradinaj has commented today Sunday’s protest in Mitrovica and the escalation of the situation, considering this as a hasty action.

“I believe that it’s important to have a calm situation, especially in the north, because the future will be better, it will be free of “peace parks”, free of barricades and filled with mutual trust. I believe that our biggest focus is to build up mutual trust and not rush into hasty actions”, says Haradinaj.

Head of AAK has also talked about the conditions imposed by Self Determination to join the opposition coalition, which was formed by AAK, LDK and INCENTIVE.

Haradinaj says that there hasn’t yet been a reply to the conditions of Self Determination, but he says that talks with Self Determination are going in the right direction and that there will be meetings in the days to come on this issue.

“No, we’re yet to issue a response, but I believe that there will be a meeting in order to further talk about what we talked the last time. We haven’t set a date, but I believe that it will be this week. Up until now, we’ve had good meetings”, said Haradinaj, who’s been nominated for the post of prime minister by LDK-AAK-INCENTIVE.

Haradinaj made these comments following the meeting with the ambassador of Belgium to Bulgaria, responsible for Kosovo, Anik Van Calster, accompanied by the head of the Belgian Office to Pristina, Pascal Gregoire.

The meeting discussed the current developments in Kosovo, the processes that the country is going through and important role of the Alliance. Van Calster also said that the meeting discussed the European future of Kosovo.

“We have a very good meeting and talked about bilateral issues, European future of Kosovo and the future of Kosovo in general. We’re committed for more joint agreements in several domains”, declared Anik Van Calster. /ibna/
