"I have complete faith in American leadership": Thaci will not negotiate with EU's Lajcak
"Without the leading role of the United States, there is no factor that drives these things," Thaci said
The president of the provisional institutions in Pristina, Hashim Thaci, says that he would not participate in the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina if it is led by the European Union envoy Miroslav Lajcak, adding that he has full confidence in the American leadership, RTS reports.
"Personally, as the president, I will respond to invitations to summits led by Merkel, Macron, etc. But I do not have the will to participate in a negotiation process led by Lajcak," said Hashim Thaci, during his visit to the Chamber of Commerce in Pristina.
He pointed out that he has "complete faith in the American leadership" which, according to him, will "successfully conclude the dialogue."
"Without the leading role of the United States, there is no factor that drives these things. Any by the EU in this regard is encouraging. But personally, I am not in contact with Lajcak and I do not know how far the Lajcak-Kurti-Borrell negotiations have progressed. We have before us two negotiators who come from countries that have not recognized Kosovo," Thaci said.
Since he was appointed EU envoy for the dialogue, Lajcak has spoken with the outgoing Prime Minister Albin Kurti several times.
Thaci reiterated today that the time has come for Kurti and, as he said, his group to face justice.
"Before thinking about the next steps, Kurti and his group will face justice. Both he and others around him have violated the constitution and laws in recent months," Thaci added.
