Kadiu: Kosovo is being penalized by the allies, Serbia is not being punished for destructive policies

Klisman Kadiu

Klisman Kadiu, the adviser of the deputy prime minister Besnik Bislimi, has said that while Kosovo is being penalized and blocked by its own allies, Serbia, according to him, is not being punished for destructive policies.

Kadiu shared the statement of the Serbian president Aleksandar Vučić, who in a meeting with the president of the Bosnian Serb ethnicity, Milorad Dodik and the leader of the Serbian Orthodox Church, stated that Serbia will never recognize the independence of Kosovo.

Councilor Bislim asked why maintaining territorial integrity and sovereignty is "a mistake for Kosovo, not for Serbia".

"Even though he denies the past, the president of Serbia is superimposing on it precisely the return to the past. In his dangerous lexicon articulated side by side with the spiritual leader of the Orthodox Church and his most important ally in the Balkans, Dodik, of course his unspoken position would be essential: "Serbia will never recognize Kosovo independent". Naturally, the question arises: what is Kosovo doing in the meantime, as it is known for constant penalties and blockades by its own allies, while Serbia lives freely in the orbit of its destructive policies without ever being punished? In this confrontation, we continue to see that maintaining constitutionality, territorial integrity and sovereignty, and making sovereign decisions, was a mistake for Kosovo, but not for Serbia," Kadiu wrote on Facebook on Saturday.

Kadi has said that Kosovo's "wrong actions" are in the service of preserving citizenship, while he mentioned a series of "good decisions" by Serbia.

"And if these "wrong decisions" of Kosovo are in the service of strengthening international recognition and citizenship and protecting its state from an aggressor on the northern border, the "good decisions" of Serbia are: embracing the border with Kosovo with military forces, the blocking of the Euro-Atlantic integration processes of Kosovo, the violations of the Brussels agreements, the incitement of tensions in the north, the kidnapping of police officials, the paramilitary aggression in Banjska, the destabilization and interventions in Bosnia and Montenegro, the impunity of the aggression Russia's approach to Ukraine, cooperation agreements with Russia and China, the excessive purchase of weapons, the appointment of those sanctioned by the US State Department to high executive positions, the suppression of free voices internally, the theft of elections, all of these, to be overlooked and passed unpunished", he wrote further.

Kadiu said that despite everything, in the end Kosovo is being punished, and "it is the one that should always show how constructive it is and take the first step". But he says that it remains a mystery when Serbia will be asked to take the first constructive step.

"It is forgotten that the dividing line between good and bad, being on the right side or the wrong side, fades when every indication lets you understand that there is actually only one orientation of all these decisions and behaviors. In the case of Serbia, as we proved above, there is no fluctuation between good and bad, or right and wrong. In the new geopolitical constellation that is being built, it is the same old Serbia. When Serbia will ever be asked to take the first constructive step remains a mystery. Maybe not that much, because only those who don't want to see and hear can expect something from someone who repeats the same refrain: 'Serbia will never recognize an independent Kosovo,'" wrote Kadiu.

As Kadiu says, everything must be done so that the mistakes of the past are not repeated.

"Well, the normalization of relations can never be the normalization of Serbia's return to Kosovo. There are relations between states. There can be no relationship between the oppressor and the oppressed. Nor can a compromise be made that leads to the subjugation of going back in time. History always has the potential to repeat itself, and one must do everything possible so that the mistakes of the past are not re-actualized in the present. There should be gratitude, and not penalization and punishment, for being democratic and progressive", concluded the article of Bislim's media adviser.

On Friday, Kosovo failed to enter the agenda of the Committee of Ministers of the European Council (CoE) for membership in this organization. Kosovo was conditioned with "concrete steps" for the Association in order to guarantee its membership in the Council of Europe. In the last moments, the Government of Kosovo tried to take a step forward, through a letter from the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Donika Gërvalla, addressed to the president of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. But there was no success.
