Vjosa Osmani talks about relations with Rama: He is saving Serbia's 'face'
The President of Kosovo, Vjosa Osmani, who is staying in New York, has spoken about the relations with Prime Minister Edi Rama.
Asked in an interview in VOA, Osmani was asked about the statement of Rama who said a few days ago that Serbia should not be pressured to impose sanctions on Russia.
According to Osmani, Rama is saving Serbia's "face".
" The disputes are of an official nature on the topics I mentioned. Of course, interpersonal relationships between politicians are completely unimportant, but what is important is interstate relationships.
I have excellent relations with President (Bajram) Begaj, whom I want to thank for since the beginning of his mandate he has done his best to make Kosovo's voice heard even in relation to countries with which we still do not have bilateral relations. Every time we needed his support, for his help to push certain initiatives forward, be they at the regional or wider level, we were able to count on him, that's why I'm saying that the relations between Kosovo and Albania as two states are important and not the relations between individual politicians. I mentioned what our differences are.
I don't think that the approach where Albanian politicians, regardless of whether they are from Kosovo, Albania, North Macedonia or Montenegro or Presheva, turn into apologists for Serbia's policies is something that helps either Kosovo or the Albanians.
I don't think it's right to justify Serbia's pro-Russian approach and actions, I don't think it's right at all to justify Serbia's not imposing sanctions on Russia because this then leads to the so-called "face-saving" policy of a regime in Serbia that also served during the time of (Slobodan) Milosevic ", said Osmani, among other things.
