They didn't even meet in Prague, Vjosa Osmani talks about the relationship with Edi Rama
Written by SOT.COM.AL 7 Tetor 2022
The frozen relationship between Kosovo President Vjosa Osmani and Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama continues. A few weeks ago, the two were at the UN headquarters, but did not meet each other. They did not even meet in Prague where 44 heads of state gathered. The head of state of Kosovo confirmed this in an interview for REL. Osmani said that there was no need for such a meeting.
"No, because of course my focus has been to get the support of the states, which [support] we still don't have and not the support of the states that we have. And, of course, Albania's support, as far as membership in international organizations is concerned, is clear to us.
I don't need to convince Albania to vote for Kosovo. We will take it to the Council of Europe, but I need to convince many other countries that are members of the Council of Europe to support us in this membership process. And the focus of the bilateral meetings was there" - said Osmani. The first clash was created in the visit Osmani made to Tirana as soon as he took office in December 2020. Then she demanded that Tirana raise its voice about the war crimes that the Serbs have committed in Kosovo.
"Prime Minister Rama's position regarding Serbia is public. You can find it in his speeches. His position is public where he calls the crimes in Kosovo simply ethnic cleansing, while those in Bosnia genocide, when, in fact, you know very well that the international courts, including the ICTY, have decided that crimes were committed in Kosovo war and crimes against humanity. And, we are convinced that the genocide committed in Kosovo will be witnessed very soon, because Serbia's goal was not simply to expel the Kosovars, the Albanian citizens from Kosovo. The goal was the extermination of the people of Kosovo" - said Osmani.
Then came the issue of the Open Balkans, where the parties did not unite again.
"As for the issues that divide us, we have agreed to disagree. As for the issue of the Open Balkans, and then there are other issues that I simply do not need to tell you what position Albania has, because that position is public" - says the head of state of Kosovo.
But is this a crack in personal relationships as well?
"There is no rift that has to do with interpersonal relationships. Because they are completely irrelevant and will always be irrelevant. The Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Albania have and will always have fraternal relations and this means that we support it wherever we can and Albania supports us as the Republic of Kosovo wherever it can" - said Osmani.
Ajo hodhi poshtë pretendimin se nismën Ballkani i hapur mbështet edhe nga SHBA dhe BE duke treguar: “Ne e kemi pasur një takim me sekretarin [amerikan] të Shtetit [Antony Blinken] dhe kjo çështje as nuk është ngritur, as nuk është kërkuar nga ana jonë”.
Osmani nënvizoi se parakushti i SHBA është që në këtë nismë të jenë të 6 vendet e Ballkanit Perëndimor, por tashmë janë vetëm 3. Edhe për pretendimin se kjo është një nismë ekonomike dhe jo politike, Osmani ka një përgjigje. “Asgjë në Ballkanin Perëndimor nuk mund t’i ikë atij lensit politik. Gjithçka, në fakt, është politike. Sidomos kur Serbia ka rol kyç në të”.
