The necessity of unifying policies for national unity

The necessity of unifying policies for national unity

The recent events in Leposavic, where Serbian commando units, planned, organized, equipped, and directed by the state structures of Serbia, launched an armed attack with firearms on the sovereign territory of the state of Kosovo, lay, among other things, the urgent necessity of the unification of the policies of the Albanian national union.

The national union, stemming from the historical right of the Albanian nation, expressed naturally in the Act of Independence and the Basic Statute of the Kingdom of Albania, was also sanctioned in the country's Constitution in 1998. In fulfilling this aspiration, in June 1998, the Albanian political spectrum, regardless of political party differences, declared publicly and unanimously under the motto: "One nation - one attitude." Time today shows that this national and constitutional aspiration is becoming increasingly urgent.

After the proclamation of the Independence of Kosovo in 2008 and the legal confirmation by International Law of this independence by the International Court of Justice of International Law in 2010, Serbia dares to organize, arm, equip, and lead through its state structures armed aggression against Kosovo. As assessed by reliable diplomatic sources, the purpose of this aggression was clear: "a coordinated and sophisticated plan to destabilize security in the region" to open a second war front in Europe alongside the one in Ukraine.

It is no secret that, in this context, Serbia, along with its unique state structures, has allocated a budget without any restrictions and provided weapons, equipment, and logistics for long-term combat operations.

The commitment of churches and monasteries that Serbia has planted in Kosovo claimed as religious and cultural assets, to store weapons and ammunition, to shelter terrorist units there, and to use them as war bunkers, completes the entire framework of the operational military plan Serbian.

The national mourning announced by the Serbian state for the terrorists was the final signature and seal that the attack by the terrorist unit in Leposavic is the responsibility of the state of Serbia, that is, a condition that sponsors and glorifies terrorism.

Twenty-nine years ago (April 10, 1994), a Greek paramilitary terrorist group committed a massacre in the Albanian sovereign territory, even inside the barracks of the Albanian military unit, killing two Albanian soldiers. The neighboring state neither identified nor punished the participants in that crime.

The two neighboring states have established permanent policies for their symbolic minorities in other states, implementing them even using force in terrorist operations.

Albania, not simply for reciprocity but for national obligation, must have unified policies with the state of Kosovo and all the Albanian state-forming components internationally recognized as such in other countries, of course, based on international law and human rights.

Naturally, Albania should take a position on the realities, as it took on the statement of the High Representative of the EU regarding the Kosovo-Serbia Dialogue dated September 19, 2023.

What is required is that all Albanian policies should be unified not only after the realities but especially before the realities. Today, this unification has become an urgent national necessity.
