Hoti: Ready to resume dialogue for mutual recognition

Kosovo Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti said today that he is ready to resume the dialogue with Serbia with a sole objective: the mutual recognition between Kosovo and Serbia. 

“I am ready to meet with Mr. Grenell to resume the dialogue for the mutual recognition between the two countries,” Hoti told reporters during a visit to Tirana, Albania.

Hoti also said that his government is stable and that Hashim Thaci still holds the office of President. He said that if the indictment against Thaci is confirmed and he resigns, the ruling coalition will find a solution for the country. “I cannot comment on hypothetical questions. The government is stable and the President has his mandate. If the President resigns, we will sit down and find a solution for the country,” he said.

“Kosovo has legitimate and constitutional institutions, ready to assume all responsibilities. I am willing and in coordination with Ambassador Grenell to schedule a date when we would meet together to resume the process of dialogue, initially with an economic agenda, and then to move on to the political issues of dialogue.”
