Over the past few weeks there have been increasing discussions about the possibility of dividing Kosovo or exchanging territories with Serbia as a solution for both countries. Kosovo’s President Hashim Thaci, however, said the idea of dividing Kosovo is not debatable and he criticised political representatives for even entertaining such ideas. “I would like to inform all of you that the idea of a division of Kosovo will not be discussed,” Thaci said. He added the agreement for the normalisation of relations with Serbia will be in accordance with Kosovo’s Constitution.
Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić is convinced that Serbia will come out with more than it has now in regards to Kosovo. In trying to achieve its objectives, Serbia is not just fighting against the Albanians, but against many Western countries, including the United Kingdom which supports Kosovo’s independence, Vučić said in an interview with Serbian Pink TV. He said the Western countries that promoted Kosovo’s independence, not only responded inadequately to the events that led to the independence, but had no subsequent “plans and ideas” and acted in accordance with their internal daily political needs. Vučić added there is a “great anxiety” in the West and in Priština, as well as in Belgrade, where some expected a complete collapse of (Serbian) policy towards Kosovo and Metohija. Vučić has accused Britain of placing spy centres in the Balkans, and added that Serbia is negotiating Kosovo in difficult, almost impossible circumstances. Whatever Serbia gets, however, it will be something, because now it has nothing, Vučić concludes.
