Kosovo premier calls on displaced persons to return home

rom report in English by independent internet news agency KosovaLive

Prishtina [Pristina], 6 July: Prime Minister Bajram Kosumi and the mayors of Kosova [Kosovo] have released a joint statement urging all displaced persons, regardless of their ethnic background, to return to their homes and possessions and to help build the country's future.

The statement was released after a meeting between Kosumi and the mayors of Kosova. It emphasizes that the cultivation of tolerance, understanding, and respect is very important at this moment.

Kosumi and the mayors also said that concrete results in this direction would be the most important indicator of Kosovar citizens' respect for the law. [Passage omitted]

"Kosova is establishing a democratic legal framework. This legislation guarantees effective protection of freedoms and human rights, both individual and collective. We are building a democratic society in which all Kosovar citizens will respect the rule of law," reads the statement's conclusion.

Yes, sure. We have a saying here in Kentucky. "Come over here, its not dangerous, said the spider to the flie". I wonder why this comes now when Eide is in doubt ?

With all due respect, I doubt you have any idea what's hapenning in Kosova.

My sources tell a totally different story. "Building a future in Kosovo"

What a double edged sword. So what would you have the Albanians do instead? NOT invite the Serbians back so you could torment them for their arrogance and anti-multiethnic mindstate?

Propose some reasonable solutions, otherwise keep your Kentucky wisecracks where they belong.

As a Kosovar Albanian (whose family had a Kosovar Serb as neighbors for hundreds of years) I welcome any Kosovar Serb who has their hands clean of blood and has the intention to live prosperously in the state of Kosova. I will be more then welcome to help start their life.

The Serbs are welcome so long as they keep their intentions clean (unlikely given their track record). Their allegiance must be to Kosova and Prishtina, not to Serbia and Belgrade.

Just a correction: Serbs did not have houses hundreds of years ago, they were living in forests.
