Djilas: 20 years of attempts to resolve the Kosovo issue by putting pressure on Serbia, no one will recognize it, maybe you should modify your approach a little

For twenty years, you have been attempting to solve the Kosovo issue by pressuring Serbia to recognize something – and no one will recognize it. And what have you done in 20 years?! Nothing. How about you modify your approach a little, or else you will continue doing this for another 20 years and end up doing nothing,“ the chief of the Party of Freedom and Justice, Dragan Djilas, said.

Reconciliation with the Albanian people can only come to be if Aleksandar Vucic and Hashim Thaci are not in power, Djilas reiterated on N1 TV on Monday.

He expressed a belief that there is a chance that the reconciliation with the Albanians could happen with the new Pristina leadership.

Speaking of Pristina’s stance that it will not talk to Serbia if it does not recognize Kosovo, Djilas said: „Those are their stances. Why would our stance be like theirs?!”

He claimed that the fact that he would talk to all those Albanians who want better lives – for their children to live better, for people to move freely, and for the students to socialize and play sports – it is not just a matter of wishful thinking.

According to Djilas, the solution to the Kosovo issue lies in the chance that international negotiators will change their approach after 20 years of pressuring Serbia to recognize Kosovo’s independence – which they have not succeeded in doing.

„Twenty years after the bombing, you are trying to solve the Kosovo issue by putting pressure on one side to recognize something – and no one will recognize it. And what have you done in 20 years?! What did you do?! Nothing. How about you modify your approach a little, or else you will continue doing this for another 20 years and end up doing nothing.“

On the remark that it was the Democratic Party that supported the Brussels Agreement at the time, Djilas emphasized that the party he was a member of in those days did not support the Brussels Agreement, noting that everyone has the right to vote. He underlined that he respected the official position of the state at the time.

The Party of Freedom and Justice led by Djilas opposes Kosovo’s independence.
