Lajm reports that the Kosovo Government does not share the opinion of Ambassador Kai Eide on the implementation of standards. The newspaper says regardless of Eide’s statement that he is disappointed with lack of progress in Standards implementation. However political advisor to Prime Minister Kosumi says the Government has made considerable progress implementing the Standards.
‘The Kosovo Government is close to finalising the plan for Standards until the end of the year. We are also seriously thinking of preparing an action strategy for Standards that will be called ‘Standards toward Europe’, even after the resolution of Kosovo’s final status,’ said Naser Rugova, PM Kosumi’s political advisor.
The newspaper recalls that in an interview for ISN Security Watch, Ambassador Eide said he would have liked to see more progress and political maturity in Kosovo. Asked to comment on the issue, the PM’s advisor said Eide’s statement was surprising to the Government. He added that due to insufficient competencies, Kosovans cannot be expected to make major accomplishments in the area of standards.
The paper quotes former Prime Minister and senior member of the PDK, Bajram Rexhepi, as saying, ‘one can notice more words than concrete actions for standards’.
