Why did Sali Berisha sink from the USA? Ramush Haradinaj bluntly tells the former prime minister: Do not declare war on America
Written by SOT.COM.AL 29 Nëntor 2021
The former Prime Minister of Kosovo, Ramush Haradinaj, commented on the clash between Sali Berisha and Lulzim Basha, after the latter's decision to expel the former historical democratic leader from the PD parliamentary group.
Excerpts from the interview on Vizion Plus
You said that at that time I opposed and made many enemies, but in fact even former Prime Minister Berisha, who has been declared non-woman by the US, says that he opposed this idea of ??George Soros and therefore was declared non-woman. How did you see these statements of Mr. Berisha who was a politician who spoke at that time about this?
It is difficult to determine why these came and how the developments in Albania happened with Mr. Berisha, the doctor and the former chairman of the Democratic Party. We have nothing to stand for, but we in Kosovo are very careful in our relations with the US and behave with respect in business meetings. We express our gratitude, our attitudes, sometimes it happens that we do not agree, but we never do public diplomacy, a war of attitudes. Because the US has been crucial in ending Serbia's genocide against Kosovo and because of the bombings it caused to Serbia, in defense of Kosovo territory.
Is it a kind of gratitude?
It is a kind of relationship that has its own codes. We do not break these codes in our relations with America and therefore we must be careful.
But do you think Berisha could have been punished for this?
I'm not clear, at the moment I find it difficult to speak. I have gone through quite big challenges, objections, but we have not reached a degree of misunderstanding with the Americans. Most of the American officials, that I had set the tax, but we continue relations with America, communication. It was the Americans even at the time of the tax who supported me for the army, so even when I said no to the abolition of the tax with Serbia, again America rewarded me for being consistent with agreeing to the Kosovo army, which was a significant act. They protect the security, they protect the national interest of Kosovo. I would like to end any hostile or controversial debate, discussion or public diplomacy that is to no one’s advantage.
You think it is an administrative matter? Does the administration influence the US?
I find it difficult to comment further. I appeal to all Albanians wherever they are, not to put themselves in the position of a public war with the American administration, especially when we aim for the EU. We have other bigger influences like Russia and others. I think we need allies like America, for understanding, even if some transgression occurs, some misunderstanding has ways of resolving issues the way our families resolve them, or at least of mutual interest.
