LVV and LDK indicate renewed talks following mutual accusations

Following mutual accusations about the reasons why a coalition agreement was not reached, the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) representatives are now saying they are waiting for an invitation from the Vetevendosje Movement (LVV) to resume talks aimed at reaching a coalition agreement.

LVV representatives meanwhile argue that dialogue cannot be held with conditions. The key difference between the two parties is the post of Kosovo President, with the LDK adamant to get the post and LVV refusing this.

LDK deputy leader Vjosa Osmani said that before the LVV invites the LDK to return to the table of talks, “the lynching campaign must stop”.

“We are optimistic that in a spirit of cooperation and mutual respect we can reach a good agreement, where both parties would feel appreciated according to the support they received from the citizens of Kosovo,” Osmani said on Thursday.

“Therefore, it is up to the parties to create an atmosphere where debate is held in a spirit of mutual respect. It is also necessary to stop the lynching campaigns because they don’t help anyone, and they derail us from the path that should lead to an agreement. This path should be maintained and respected throughout the four-year mandate.”
