Ramush Haradinaj, prime minister of the provisional institutions in Pristina, denied today the possibility of negotiating the status of the Trepca mining combine in the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue in Brussels.
On the occasion of EU Maja Kocijancic's statement on Facebook that the issue of Trepca status should be part of the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, he wrote that such a position is "unacceptable" because it "violates the sovereignty of the state of Kosovo".
Haradinaj said that Trepca was not an open issue in relations between Belgrade and Pristina and that citizens and institutions of Kosovo will never allow the creation of "false themes" whose goal, in his opinion, is the division of Kosovo.
Maja Kocijancic said earlier that the issue of Trepca should be resolved through a legally binding agreement on the overall normalization of Belgrade-Pristina relations, and stressed that "all open issues in the relations of the two sides should be resolved through the finalization of the dialogue."
- The EU, as the mediator in the dialogue, aims to resolve all open issues between the two sides once and for all through a legally binding agreement on the overall normalization of relations between Belgrade and Pristina - Kocijancic told Tanjug about the consequences for the dialogue on the adoption of the Trepca statute in parliament in Pristina.
