Dialogue with Serbia, February 14th elections crucial for relations between the

Based on recent statements, whether direct or implicit, of the political leaders of Serbia and Kosovo, a continuation of the dialogue process between the two countries is seen as very difficult. Such a thing is technically impossible until the spring. This is due to the fact that Kosovo is already in an electoral process, while Serbia a little later starts the same process. What has made all this even more difficult is the fact that recently the political parties in Kosovo are throwing the idea of ??restoring reciprocity with the Serbian state. "Kosova Press" reports that unlike in the past, where only Lëvizja Vetëvendosje insisted on this measure, now such voices are being heard in the LDK. While in Ramush Haradinaj's party, call for a re-engagement of the US to reach a final agreement with Serbia involving mutual recognition. The leader of the Vetëvendosje Movement, at the same time the candidate for prime minister, Albin Kurti, expressed his determination that the relations with Serbia, after the elections, will be built only on the basis of reciprocity. "Relations with Serbia will be built on reciprocity, even on the basis of the recent past, which has not yet been closed. "Everything should start with documenting and addressing the war damage, with the identification and finding of missing persons and the prosecution and punishment of war criminals", said Kurti at the last meeting of the general council of LVV. Although seven months ago, the LDK as the main party in government lifted reciprocity measures towards Serbia,

LDK reactions

LDK General Council member Faton Bislimi says that the LDK has consistently had a proactive approach to dialogue with Serbia, but according to him reciprocity can be used as an instrument to achieve certain goals. "LDK has consistently had a pro-active approach to dialogue, we did not expect to become just an instrument of participation in dialogue. But in every aspect, even in close coordination with partners, especially in the US, we have tried to turn the dialogue process into a concluding phase and it results in mutual recognition so that the issue of our relations with our neighbors is settled once and for all. forever. Reciprocity is a policy found in the options table and can be used as an instrument to achieve certain goals. I believe that the LDK has shown its willingness to leave any of its democratic means open as an opportunity to achieve certain political goals. This case also with Serbia, why not. "We have seen and continue to see reciprocity within these political tools," he said. On the other hand, the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo party seems to be more convinced than ever that the only alternative to continue the dialogue is mutual recognition as the only topic on the table. "We see the dialogue being at the table with the United States as Kosovo's partner and lifelong friend. While we will see others as partners that enable a genuine dialogue, always keeping in mind the final solution, which is the recognition of Kosovo by Serbia. Other topics can be discussed after the acquaintance, but we consider that recognition is the topic that should be on the table ", says the vice president of AAK, Ahmet Isufi. However, everything is left to the fact which party will be the government in Kosovo, to know further what will be its policies towards Serbia and attitudes in the dialogue process. What is worth mentioning is the fact that a general opinion agrees with the fact that with the change of administration in the US, ie with the coming to power of Joe Biden, Kosovo has more support than in a mediation by the Trump administration which was more inclined towards Serbia. to further know what will be its policies towards Serbia and attitudes in the dialogue process.
