Parliament in Kosovo will hold a debate on the process of dialogue with Serbia on Thursday. The opposition has been quite vocal in its criticism about the current government led by Prime Minister Albin Kurti accusing it for lack of transparency in the EU facilitated talks.
“We should not consider dialogue with Serbia as a reason to hold parliamentary debates, but the government is showing a lack of transparency in this process. Today, we as MPs know very little about what the government is doing,” said the chairman of the Democratic Party of Kosovo parliamentary group, Abelard Tahiri.
Meanwhile, according to him, “it’s very important that we’re clear about Kosovo’s strategy on this process of dialogue”.
The dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia started in 2011, three years after Kosovo had declared its independence from Serbia and 12 years after the end of the war there. The process of dialogue aims at normalising ties between the two countries and it’s being facilitated by the European Union. Since then, many agreements have been signed covering many areas, but not all of them have been implemented.
