Kosovo rejects and closes its teeth in the soul

Kosovo rejects and closes its teeth in the soul

For the first time after six meetings held since October 2019, when the Open Balkans Initiative started, two days ago in Ohrid, in the position of observer for Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Prime Minister of Montenegro had come himself. , Albanian Dritan Abrazovic and the Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bosnian Zoran Tageltija. The two prime ministers expressed positive that the parliaments of their countries would soon take the political decision to join the regional initiative where to date are only Serbia, Northern Macedonia and Albania. Only Kosovo representatives were absent. Realistically, you are very sorry and hurt for the myopia of the leaders of Kosovo, regarding the benefits and opportunities of regional integration. It is not the first time. In early August 2021, The Assembly of Kosovo failed to adopt a Resolution proposed by an opposition party, for the implementation of the 16 Washington Economic Agreements, signed on September 4, 2020 between Serbia, Kosovo and the United States. Kosovo and Serbia, as states that do not know each other, signed economic agreements in Washington separately with the United States of America, promising the gradual normalization of their economic relations, through 16 measures that they agreed to take in the future. close. They pledged to implement the transport agreements signed in Munich, Germany in February 2020. They also agreed on a joint feasibility study on the possibilities for connecting the Belgrade-Pristina railway network to a deep Adriatic seaport. Both countries desperately want a trade outlet to the Adriatic. Certainly the closest port to both is Durres, where Kosovo has a customs office for its orders and transit goods to Kosovo. However, the possibility of investing (possibly jointly) in the reconstruction and deepening of the Port of Shengjin is not ruled out, for which the Government of Albania has agreed in principle to be used by Kosovo as its port and exit to the Adriatic. On the other hand, both Kosovo and Serbia decided in Washington to work with the US International Development Finance Corporation and the US bank EXIM (Export-Import), with memoranda of understanding, to concretize a number of joint development projects, including " Peace Highway "Belgrade-Pristina. There was talk of $ 1 billion in US investment in both countries. All these 16 measures-agreements were and remain a good omen for the normalization of political relations between the two countries. The administration of President Biden has considered the agreements as well and has stated that it expects Kosovo and Serbia to adhere to the obligations deriving from them. What did the current leaders of Kosovo do in August 2021? The failure of the resolution of the Assembly of Kosovo on August 5, 2022 was a step back that brings pain in the soul of all those who love Kosovo closer to Euro-Atlantic integration and the EU. Such are the absolute majority of the 2.8 million Albanians living in Albania today. In June 2021, through the government spokesman, the government of Kosovo considered the historic Washington agreements without legal value, because the then Prime Minister of Kosovo was elected to the Assembly without reaching the required majority, because he lacked one vote (?!). To cite an internal procedural cause, even if it stands entirely, as a reason to deny the value of the Washington agreements to the citizens of Kosovo, constitutes a very serious mistake, produced by an unfortunate political myopia. Kosovo is the European country outside the EU, with the highest percentage of its population as a new Diaspora created in the member states of the European Union, after Albania. Its citizens have the necessity of abolishing the visa regime with EU countries, realized for Albania a decade ago. This is the major interest and should be the main topic of Kosovar politics today. All the efforts of the current government of Kosovo must go for it. The Open Balkans helps this cause of its citizens. Only the current government in Pristina is not seeing this. This myopia was repeated on the occasion of the Ohrid meeting on the Open Balkans. However, Kosovo, despite the official refusal to come to Ohrid, will sooner or later join the initiative. Kosovar business is clear about this. It takes some time for Kosovo politicians to understand and not breathe only with the dasis of the past. Everyone will come together because they will see the real benefits. All of us in the Western Balkans do not have time to live in the past. We all have the same problems in the region and we need to work together to solve them. The pandemic showed this quite clearly. When one of our economies suffers, we all suffer.
