Prishtina [Pristina], 4 July: At the time when Kosova [Kosovo] status talks are being intensified, the representatives of the Albanians in the Presheve [Presevo] Valley reconfirm their stance that their status must be solved in correlation with the status of the Serbs living in the northern part of Kosova. In case that this does not happen, they did not exclude the possibility of an armed conflict.
Jonuz Musliu, the head of the Movement for Democratic Progress [LPD] and former representatives of the Liberation Army of Presheve, Medvedja and Bujanovac told KosovaLive [UCPMB] that it is natural that every movement in Kosova reflects in the Presheve Valley.
He said that in 2001 they fought to join Kosova, and that the international community must understand that this is an inalienable right of the Albanians.
"Every other decision which is against the will of the Albanians would be a wrong decision and would destabilize the region. Therefore the international community should not allow double standards for the status of the Kosova Serbs and the status of Albanians in the Presheve Valley," said Musliu.
On the other hand, the International Crisis Group [ICG] released a report announcing that there is a possibility of the escalation of the situation in the Presheve Valley, in case that the international community does not intervene there. The ICG has called on for the demilitarization of the region and implementation of the peace agreement.
