Kosovo: Debate on the Association of Serb Communes returns

The debate on the formation of the Association of Serb Communes has once again returned in Kosovo.

This request by Serb representatives in Kosovo has also been backed by the international community in Pristina.

Prime Minister of Kosovo, Ramush Haradinaj has said that this institution will be formed in compliance with the Constitution of Kosovo and the ruling of Kosovo’s Constitutional Court.

Meanwhile, the head of the Office for Information at the government of Kosovo, Halil Matoshi said that the government is yet to come up with a decision regarding the time or the very formation of the Association.

Igor Simic, Serb List MP and spokesperson of this political party, says that there’s now a good will for the creation of the Association of Serb Communes, not only within the Serb List, but also among representatives of the international community in Kosovo.

“We are yet to come up with a date for this process. This process requires time, but what’s important is that this is an obligation stemming from the agreement and this is not an imposed agreement, but an agreement that was reached by delegations of both countries”, Simic said.

On the other hand, the EU ambassador to Kosovo, Nataliya Apostolova declared that institutions of Kosovo must form the Association of Serb Communes in accordance to the laws of Kosovo and that this institution will not be a parallel structure of the Serbs in Kosovo. /balkaneu.com/
