The member of the Steering Council of the Democratic Party of Kosovo, Ramë Buja, has said that it is disturbing how the sacrifice of those who gave their lives for freedom is not being appreciated enough.

According to him, there is a risk of repeating the events of 25 years ago, considering the recent political developments. 

"How valued is the contribution of those people who have given their lives to realize what is the most sublime, the most precious, the most expensive - freedom - I have the impression that we do not know how to appreciate this thing, as if we have forgotten a little and this it bothers you. Those people who do not know how to appreciate their sacrifice, there is a risk of repeating it, which would be much more tragic than the first, I want to believe that this will not happen, although in fact the latest political developments are about to worried", he said on KTV's "60 Minutes" on Thursday.

While talking about his participation in the Rambouillet conference, he said that an interim government is mentioned between the first and second phase, but that it remained half-hearted because the Democratic League of Kosovo has not sent names, as representatives for this government.

"The most serious phase of the Rambouillet conference was when part of the delegation from Kosovo requested that we have two weeks to return to Kosovo and get that final permission to sign the agreement. An interim government was mentioned between the first phase of the conference and the second, there with the help of our friends this thing was done and it was logical to happen, however it did not turn out the way we wanted because in the second phase when we went to Paris for them signed the agreement, we expected that the LDK would also bring people with names and surnames, it did not happen and this government remained half-hearted", he said. 

Buja said that the Special Court in The Hague tends to equate Serbia's crimes with the fight for freedom.

"This court (Special in The Hague) has a tendency to equalize crimes. This has no logic. Who committed the crime? A people who fought for their freedom? We are in this position where we can do much more and we are not doing it, that is the bad thing. The sentence that will be pronounced at the Hague Court is a sentence that will be given to Kosovo, not to those men who are staying there", added Buja. 

Regarding the dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia, he estimated that it is at the zero stage. 

"The dialogue process is at the zero stage. No progress has been made. Mutual recognition was forgotten, not mentioned at all. This is very dangerous," he said.
