Hoti insists that there will be no exchange of territories

The Prime Minister of Kosovo, Avdullah Hoti, spoke on Wednesday about the dialogue with Serbia, saying that the final agreement will be based on the Constitution and, according to him, there will be no exchange of territories.

According to him, after the signing of the final agreement with Serbia, mutual recognition, recognition by the five countries of the European Union, membership in the United Nations Organization, the repeal of resolution 1244 and moving forward in the Euro-Atlantic integration procedures should immediately take place.

Prime Minister Hoti in the discussion "What is the platform of the Government of Kosovo in the dialogue with Serbia?", organized by the Democratic Institute of Kosovo (KDI), said that he does not know the background of the dialogue, but he knows that there will be no talk of exchange of the territories.

"I don't know the background of this process, what I requested from our international partners on the first day that I took office, from the phone calls to Berlin, Parsi, Brussels and Washington, I requested as prime minister to know where the process reached, the answer theirs has been clear, it has got nowhere, the two sides will sit down as two independent states and negotiate to reach a comprehensive agreement that should send mutual recognition. What does this mean? It means that all the various conspiracies about maps and territory exchanges are irrelevant to me, they are not true, I don't know if they happened or not, but they are not taken into account and are not part of the discussions that I will have with my team in this process", said Hoti.

On June 27, Prime Minister Hoti will visit the White House, to participate in the meeting between the two parties, Kosovo and Serbia.

This meeting was called by the US special envoy for the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue, Richard Grenell.

On Tuesday, the president of Kosovo, Hashim Thaçi, said that he hopes that this meeting can raise hopes for a final agreement.

However, the president of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, said on the same day that the topic of the meeting will not be the recognition of Kosovo's independence, but economic issues.
