Osmani: Grenell’s visit, high interest of White House for Kosovo
Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) deputy leader Vjosa Osmani told the news website on Wednesday that frequent visits by international officials to the LDK should not be seen as pressure for a coalition government agreement.
“This is not pressuring. These are ordinary meetings where we inform the embassies about our positions, the latest developments and the ideas we have raised to emerge from the current situation,” she said.
“We get suggestions and aid but countries that have helped liberate and build the state of Kosovo should never be seen as putting pressure on us because everything they have done is provide aid and support democracy”.
Asked to comment on the visit to Kosovo by U.S. Presidential Envoy, Richard Grenell, Osmani said: “it is too early to comment on the topics or suggestions that will be made in our meeting. This visit is very welcomed because it is proof of high interest, especially by the White House, for Kosovo and the region in general”.
“Ever since his appointment, Ambassador Grenell showed great interest and did an outstanding job – always focusing on ideas on how to conclude the dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia and to bring economic development to our region. He never insisted on any dangerous ideas such as border changes or partition; these are ideas that belong to the past and also thanks to his contribution too”.
