British Ambassador to Kosovo, Ruairi O’Connell, during a meeting with the leader of Vetevendosje, Albin Kurti, said his country supports sovereignty of Kosovo and every change of border is dangerous not only for Kosovo, but the entire region.
O’Connell is against the idea “partition or conflict” whereas Kurti informed the British Ambassador that the opposition party of Vetevendosje is against, as he said, dangerous games of President Hashim Thaci on exchanging territories with Serbia. According to a press release issued by Vetevendosje, Kurti said that Thaci is manipulating citizens of the Presheva Valley and is undermining statehood, sovereignty, territorial and institutional integrity of Kosovo. “The President has no mandate to adress such topics. And he has no principles or platform. The way forward is not exchange of territories but reciprocity of rights. Serbia should recognise Kosovo’s independence and face its past,” Kurti said.
