The issue of the creation of the governing coalition must be resolved by Kosovan leaders, while United States of America will work with the government of Kosovo regardless as to who will form it, if it will be result of a fair, credible and transparent process. This is the official positioning of the US expressed by the American embassy on Tuesday afternoon, when the news about the signing of the coalition between LDK-AAK and Incentive for Kosovo was confirmed.

“The strategies and political domestic discussions about the possible coalitions are a responsibility of political leaders of Kosovo”, declared Elie Teichman, spokesman of the US embassy to Pristina.

“We have constantly said that the US embassy is ready to collaborate with any government which comes out of fair, credible and transparent elections”, said Teichman.

He further added: “We’re expecting to see all the future steps that will lead to the creation of a government which will be consistent with the law and Constitution of Kosovo”.

While baroness Ashton’s office has not issued a reaction, saying that “she’s in Athens”, European diplomats have been surprised by the agreement that was reached, because they were under the impression that “Thaci had an agreement with Haradinaj”. /ibna/
