The European Parliament Rapporteur for Kosovo, Viola von Cramon, spoke about the “non-paper” documents for redefining the borders in the Balkans, which recently leaked to the media, which she said were drafted in Moscow and Belgrade. She commented on yesterday’s religious liturgy by Serbian clergy in the Orthodox Church in the courtyard of the University of Prishtina campus, considered a provocation in Kosovo.
Von Cramon has said he does not know if such an action [liturgjia] was a provocation from the Serbian side, but suggested that Kosovo focus on its European agenda.
“This provocation by the Serbian community may or may not be true. I do not think it is necessary to be considered as such, because we must continue with the positive agenda regarding what we have to agree on, what is on the agenda of Kosovo that is intended to be achieved. I think that for me, and for us in Brussels, it is more important to focus on the common things we need to work on, than to be distracted by these, to call them unpleasant reactions or returns from Serbia. Therefore, whether such a thing was intentional, accidental, or just happened, I do not know. I do not want to speculate. “I would like to try to find the agenda in which you and the European Union want to work, on behalf of the citizens of Kosovo”, she said for KosovaPress.
During the interview, Von Cramon also commented on “non-papers”, which he said were drafted in Moscow and Belgrade.
According to her, such are intended to disturb the Balkans.
“I will simply ignore this, because most of the ‘non-papers’ drafted not in Brussels, but in Moscow and Belgrade, Hungary, Budapest, create a lot of fear, panic, trauma and more are meant to upset. region, that they bring a process of compliance and that is very sad, very unfortunate, and we have to talk about the consequences that will have on the people in the region, so we do not have to take them into account. I would like to ignore them. It’s a very toxic topic and it was certainly not drafted in Brussels. “
Briefly, she commented on yesterday’s clashes at the Tirana Summit, between the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti and his Serbian counterpart, Ana Brnabiç. According to Kurti, the clashes took place after the Serbian Prime Minister refused to recognize Kosovo’s independence. And, according to Von Cramon, Serbia must accept the reality now.
“I was not present at that table. It’s hard to comment on that. It is unfortunate that we are still at this point. What can I say. I have no witnesses to this situation. It’s hard to say anything from the outside. Therefore, I would like to be as constructive as I can. I will try to put pressure on Serbia from the Commission that they should be ready to accept some of the needs, the reality and the facts that Kosovo is on the right track and that we will need such a thing from Serbia as well. on the road to European integration, which includes the recognition of Kosovo or what agreement in which Kosovo discusses from the same level. I do not want to comment on this concrete case. “
