Conditional independence would be a temporary solution and as such is unacceptable, Lajm quotes some of Kosovo politicians as saying.
‘I agree on the creation of a joint group for talks with Belgrade on technical issues of interest to citizens of both countries, but Kosovo’s final status, independence, is non-negotiable’, said Kosovo Assembly Speaker Nexhat Daci.
‘I think such an approach [conditional independence] is not a solution to the problem of status. Either there is independence or not, a state or not’, said Enver Hoxhaj, a senior PDK official.
‘Conditional independence is one of the options and we should not react very aggressively to it as it is a step towards full independence’, said Mahmut Bakallli, former adviser to Ramush Haradinaj.
