Kurti talks about Decani Monastery: Decisions of Slobodan Milosevic's regime have no place in this century
Prime Minister of the government in Pristina Albin Kurti has doubts about Constitutional Court's decision to allocate 24 hectares of land to the medieval Serbian Orthodox Monastery of Visoki Decani
Prime Minister of the government in Pristina Albin Kurti spoke about Visoki Decani to say that that the issue of returning land to this monastery was "a decision of the regime of Slobodan Milosevic" which "has no place in this century," RTK reports.
He said that he had doubts about the decision of the Constitutional Court to allocate 24 hectares to the Decani monastery.
"I understand that the Decani Monastery should have space, I understand that they need peace, but we have the usual reservations regarding decisions that, to our surprise, were accepted by the Constitutional Court, which conducted the case without going through the usual phases. The decisions of the Milosevic regime cannot live in our century," he said.
He explained that society cannot go back to the period before 1999, nor before 2008 and 2012, when the supervision of Kosovo's independence was removed.
"These are things that happened in the past, we are where we are and every attempt to return to the past, I believe cannot be the future," said Kurt and added that dialogue is necessary to resolve the issue of the Visoki Decani monastery.
Kurti on ZSO: Ruling of the Constitutional Court should be respected
Kurti also stated that the mediators in the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina sometimes, regarding the Community of Serb Municipalities (ZSO), refer to the past, but still accept and respect the verdict of the Constitutional Court.
"As far as the Community is concerned, mediators sometimes refer to the past, but they still accept it and respect the verdict of the Constitutional Court," said Kurti.
Regarding the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, Kurti said that he is in favor of reaching an agreement as soon as possible, but, according to him, Serbia does not want that.
"I am interested in reaching an agreement as soon as possible, but Serbia does not want that, it does not want to change its Constitution," Kurti told RTK.
Kurti also said that the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina should not benefit Serbia as a state, but should deal with the requirements of Kosovo Serbs.
"We are not against them, but Serbia is against us. The international community is also convinced that we are creative and that we are on the right track," said Kurti.
