BELGRADE, Serbia (AA) – Establishing a union of Serb municipalities in Kosovo is not possible and Serbia should pay compensation for the 1999 war, Kosovo’s prime minister has said.
Addressing the parliament on Wednesday, Albin Kurti said 93 percent of Kosovo population was 93% although it is a multi-ethnic state.
“The formation of the Community of Serb Municipalities in Kosovo is not possible because it is against the Constitution. When we declared independence, we said that although Kosovo has 93% Albanians, it cannot be called Albanian, but multi-ethnic.
“It is not possible to form a national community now because we already have the Association of Kosovo Municipalities,” Kurti was quoted as saying by local media.
He added that Serbia must compensate for the damage it caused to Kosovo in the 1999 war in terms of people and material goods.
Kurti’s remarks came after dozens of Kosovo Albanians protested Tuesday against his plan to establish the union of Serbian municipalities.
