Hoti: Nothing will be implemented without the final agreement

Kosovo Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti told a press conference on Tuesday that Kosovo has no reason to obstruct the process of dialogue with Serbia and that there can be no other solution except mutual recognition and a final settlement between the two countries.

Hoti said Kosovo and Serbia are being treated equally in the process and added that no agreement that has been reached so far will be implemented without the signing of the final agreement.
“This government is not afraid to engage in the dialogue. We will sit at the table because the principles are clear and agreed upon both domestically and with our international friends. The dialogue is the only way to resolve outstanding issues between Kosovo and Serbia. Even if it takes one, two, or even five years, we will dialogue until we reach the finale of mutual recognition in the existing borders. There is no other solution,” he said.

On the Association/Community of Serb-majority municipalities, Hoti said: “when I say that the topic of the Association is closed I say it in the sense that there is an agreement in 2013 that was ratified by the Kosovo Assembly, and another agreement of principles in 2015, and we also have the opinion of the Constitutional Court. From this standpoint, this topic is closed. However, the state of Kosovo has an obligation and we will respect it … Nothing will be implemented until a final agreement including mutual recognition is reached. We have built the process of the dialogue not for a provisional but rather a permanent solution that normalizes relations between the two countries once and for all”.
