Kurti: Social integration is a true integration and not the institutional one

Pristina, May 2, 2013-The chairman of the Self Determination Movement, Albin Kurti has declared that the political dialogue in Brussels between Thaçi and Dacic is justified by the government of Kosovo with the need of the integration of the Serbs of Kosovo.

“In fact, in all those cases when we’ve had talks and negotiations between Kosovo and Serbia, the argument used by authorities of Kosovo has been: the integration of the Serbs of Kosovo, whereas for Serbia: the protection of the Serbs of Kosovo. The government of Kosovo talks about the integration of the Serbs to be acceptable for the international institutions and to soften the heart of those that have the files of corruption and organized crime in their hands”, said Kurti in parliament.

According to Kurti, the opportunism of Pristina is complemented by the hypocrisy of Belgrade.

Kurti has reiterated the fact that the true and sustainable integration consists on the social integration and not in the institutional one. “Institutional integration comes from above. Kosovo needs to have integration from below. Integration from above remains above and doesn’t come down. Integration from below goes up. Integration from above is conjectural, whereas integration from below is democratic”, said Kurti. /ibna/
