All media cover a debate that Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj had yesterday in Pristina with students of the Faculty of Philosophy. Koha Ditore
highlights on its front page that Haradinaj has again attacked President Hashim Thaci’s readiness to negotiate Kosovo’s borders with Serbia, however, he also said that the President is the only authority that can represent Kosovo in the negotiations. Haradinaj also said he was leading a challenged government as it is a coalition of many political parties. “The government in our country is challenged, I lead a coalition consisting of several parties and as such, a government is challenged even from within. The most challenging have been some of the issues that I have found on my table,” he added. He further said he has requested from the governing cabinet not complain about what they found left from the previous government, but to tell him about what they are doing from the time they took duties over. “There are acute issues but problematic ones as well. I told them not to hide any of the issues. The Law on Pristina was a long-discussed matter. We have started dealing with all issues of Kosovo of all possible natures. This is how we took over some cardinal matters such as Law on the army. You saw the U.S. representative who said yesterday at the UN that he supports creation of Kosovo’s army,” Haradinaj said. According to him, the government he leads is not perfect as there are remarks and mistakes. “But we are not doing something bad, it is a government that did not fear issues. We have now INTERPOL, it is being experienced with emotions, but this is a possibility for Kosovo to fight the crime. We have visa liberalization that we are working on. We have not reach as much on education, the reason is that I found on my desk matters older than a decade”. He further said that it is in Kosovo’s interest to be recognized by Serbia. “We are interested to be recognized by Serbia and we should negotiate about recognition, but with untouchability of what we have created so far. If the opposite happens, then it is dangerous for the country. If we do not know to protect what we have achieved, we cannot protect something new,” Haradinaj said.
