Kurti: Serbia-Russia deal should alarm Western democratic centers

Kosovo’s Prime Minister Albin Kurti reacted to an agreement between Serbia and Russia on coordinating their foreign policy actions, saying that it should raise the alarm among Western democratic centers.

“We are a democratic and progressive government of hope, but our northern neighbor is led by a president of fear and intimidation. In addition to leading his country in an undemocratic fashion, he also does not recognize Kosovo or the crimes committed by the Milosevic regime in Kosovo. He also keeps close ties with the Russian Federation as we have seen with the cooperation agreement signed by the Serbian and Russian foreign ministers. This should raise an alarm among Western democratic centers,” Kurti said.
