"Territorial exchange, legitimizes ethnic cleansing in the North"

Almost two decades after violent expelling of Albanians from the northern part of Kosovo, ‘we are witnesses of the Serbian ambitions to annex Kosovo territories,” said Sherifi.

Bilall Sherifi, caucus of the Social-Democratic Initiative (NISMA) said on Monday during his speech in front of the European Parliament and Kosovo Assembly MPs discussing “War crimes and road toward reconciliation” that almost two decades after violent expelling of Albanians from the northern part of Kosovo, ‘we are witnesses of the Serbian ambitions to annex Kosovo territories.” 

“I focused today during my speech on “Ethnic Cleansing” as a form of genocide. The focusing had only one intention, to draw attention to the danger that is threatening Kosovo and our entire region. Under the mask of “territorial exchange” or “border corrections” between Kosovo and Serbia, they are preparing terrain in order to legitimize Serbian genocide in Kosovo, " Sherifi said.
