Kosovo PM calls on West not to put pressure over Serb entity

by Cristian Florescu

Kosovar Prime Minister Albin Kurti has called on Western powers not to pressure his tiny Balkan country into accepting a contentious association of five Serb-majority municipalities that is ramping up tensions between Kosovo and Serbia.

In an interview on Sunday, Kurti stated that the Serbian government should recognize Kosovo’s independence in order to come to terms with the past. He also noted that Belgrade should focus on aligning with the European Union and NATO instead of Russia.

The prime minister said that if Belgrade abandons the idea that Kosovo still belongs to Serbia, “they will be much more democratic, European.”
