PM Qeku says Kosovo wants good relations with Serbia

PRISTINA, April 24 (Hina) - Kosovo Prime Minister Agim Qeku said in Pristina on Monday that his government wanted good relations with Serbia, stressing however that good bilateral relations also required good will from the other party.

During his regular weekly address to citizens on Radio Kosovo, Qeku said that Serbian institutions must do all that they could to shed light on the fate of thousands of Albanians who went missing. He also asked Serbia to distance itself from the past and apologise for what he called horrible crimes committed in Kosovo.

Qeku said Serbia must accept a new reality and recognise Kosovo as an independent and sovereign state in which local Serbs, as Kosovo citizens, should realise their future in peace and mutual respect.

Speaking about the Kosovo-Macedonia border demarcation issue, Qeku said this would not be an apple of discord in good bilateral relations, adding that the two sides would find a modus vivendi, based on the principle of border inviolability in the region.

He is dead wrong. The Serbs in Kosovo are citizens of Serbia-not some ridiculous Kosovo state. They will always be citizens of Serbia. International law also allows them to be citizens of Serbia.

how was he wrong?, they live on ethnic albanian land, they must accept their fate. If anything, the international community will take the back of the albanian majority.

Serbs will be living on Serb land and will pledge allegiance to Serbia. That's the way things are going to be in Kosovo.

Just like the French in Canada should in no way demostrate loyalty to, or identify with the rest of the Canadians?

Serbs of Kosova can most certainly be citizens of Serbia - in that case they need to be registered as visitors in Kosova, and won't be allowed to work or get any of the benefits.

Its a shame NATO stopped Serbia, I remember there was a time when backwards Albanians used the wrong side of the road to leave Kosovo. Wouldn't it be pleasant if Tomislav Nikolic gained control of Serbia? with America and the EU tied up else where who would come to anyones aid?

As an Albanian I sincerely hope Nikolic gets the power in sewerbia.

Have any of you ever been to kosovo? What a fucking shithole. I heard it was nice years ago before albanians started flocking there to escape from a tyrant in albania.

I beleive that me must learn to leave the past behind for the sake of our next generation. Otherwise we will always be fighting with each other. Lest make peace rather then war and show to rest of the world that Albanian can forgive as well.

As a soldier in the 111th air borne I'd say I speak for all Real Christian Americans when I say I hope Kosovo does try to gain independence.... Only so the Serbs can erase some of Americas past mistakes by attacking and re-cleaning the province. I for one know my unit wouldn't do a thing for Albanians.

Let the "SHITHOLE" become independent. Crap can only run in one direction, downhill.

I have heard story after story of American servicemen that cannot stand albanians, for thier primitivism and hatred, etc.

As a soldier, you have an opinion, but are sworn to uphold US policy and lawful orders. You don't speak for the rest of us.

dave said...

So the 111th airborne is now written "air borne" and they are now stationed in Kosovo/a?
Nice try.

Any intelligent person with true knowledge of the region (from experience or education) who has actually been there will testify that independence is the only logical/possible solution. I would appreciate if people would stop using false identities to slander the cause for peace, security and development in Kosovo/a.

I'd also like to say that I have had countless friendly experiences with Albanians. I've also met some bad apples... In every country I've ever been to. Just like anywhere on the planet, 90% of the people from any ethnic group are good people. The other 10% exists in every ethnic group everywhere and causes most of the problems in the world.

I also applaud another bold statement from Ceku, who continues to prove his maturity as leader of a very tense region.

- a friend of the entire Balkan region from the USA.

dave,

"Any intelligent person with true knowledge of the region (from experience or education) who has actually been there will testify that independence is the only logical/possible solution."

I would like to hear arguments for that kind of solution in regards to to your education and experience but only if you visited Kosovo and Metohija 1998 and earlier. In ethnic clean society like Kosovo and Metohija another solutions beside independence are not accepted or ignored.

Of course, on the other end, maybe you married an Albanian girl like former lobbyst and KaM administrator Michael Steiner or you have Albanian relatives like UN deputy chief negotiator for Kosovo Albert Roan?

In that case i understand your arguments, your knowledge and your experience.

"In ethnic clean society like Kosovo and Metohija another solutions beside independence are not accepted or ignored. " Are you a retard or something? DO you even know what you wrote really means. Anywho, independence seeking is based on two facts not considering the demographics, one- kosova had autonmy-serbs removed it, meaning any autonomy we get now could be abolished same as it was in 1989.
two-serbs committed genocide on albanian population of Kosova by killing thousands and deporting 800000 out of kosova.

Just by the name "albanians" says to me they belong in "albania". Why do they keep pouring into other countries? Is their own country so bad?

Just by the identity "NYoutlawyer" says to me you don't belong in NY, or Web for that matter...Have you been BOOTED from your own kind?
