PM Ana Brnabić on BBC: Compromise with Kosovo impossible without discussing land swap

November 4, 2018
BBC interviews Serbia’s Prime Minister during her visit to Oxford last Thursday. She’s adamant that a territory swap is on the cards leaving little doubt that Serbia would need to recognise the rest of Kosovo and Metohija as an independent country.

Dan Damon spoke with Prime Minister Ana Brnabić for BBC World Update. She gives a characteristically fervent performance, perhaps hoping to leave the impression on listeners that Serbia means business as the country seeks to enter the EU.
Brnabić also gave her opinion that a territory swap has to be considered for any compromise deal to be possible.
That means Kosovska Mitrovica might join Serbia proper. But it leaves several serious questions.
Firstly, for Priština to “give away” northern Kosovo, they would seek Serbia to compromise. That means either Serbia recognise the rest of the territory as an independent country. Or (and?) that Serbia swaps its southern regions including Preševo Valley where ethnic Albanians are in the majority.
Neither Brnabić nor the BBC sought to divulge answers.
True, she mentions that entry into the EU does not require Serbia to recognise Kosovo’s independence – indeed five EU states do not. But those words sound as hollow as bargaining chips in the light of her enthusiasm for a “land swap” which would draw a line under the issue of Kosovo and Metohija once and for all.
Here’s the interview in full which starts 16 minutes into the programme.
DD: Less than 20 years ago, Serbia was being bombed by NATO until the country withdrew its army from Kosovo. Since then Serbia has refused to recognise Kosovo’s independence but now there are serious diplomatic moves to try to resolve the situation.
Serbia’s Prime Minister Ana Brnabić is in England at the moment and she’s speaking at a conference in Oxford about how she’s trying to modernise that country’s government. This at a time when the country is seeking EU membership. She’s been meeting with senior EU officials and Kosovo’s President Hashim Thaci at a security conference in Minsk, that was just yesterday.
Serbia is in discussions with Kosovo about a possible land swap but it’s also warning that the plans being laid out in Kosovo to launch an army later this month threaten to derail those peace talks. I spoke to Ana Brnabić just a few minutes ago and began about asking her about that meeting with the Kosovo President in Belarus.
AB: We had a meeting in Minsk as part of the core group of the Munich Security Conference. Ambassador Wolfgang Ischinger was there as well as Commissioner Johannes Hahn. It was one of the normal discussions that we have and dialogue … that goes to prove that much has changed but still a lot needs to be done. We now have normal dialogue but there’s still…and I said that clearly to Mr Thaci… the incidents that are happening in Kosovo and Metohoja…the attacks on Serbs, incidents, the unilateral decision to start transforming the so-called Kosovo security forces into a Kosovo army is not helping the dialogue. It’s not helping to stabilise the relationship. But we need to move forward with this dialogue because of peace and stability in the region and that is the only thing that will bring prosperity to everyone living in the region.
DD: And he in his turn has tweeted a link to a Financial Times article saying that the idea of northern Kosovo, the part you spoke about around Mitrovica, that that might be given to Serbia in some way. Is that realistic, that borders could be changed?
AB: Listen, I think that the only possible outcome or agreement needs to be a compromise. Compromise means that both sides win some and lose some and Belgrade is ready for compromise whatever that compromise entails. It might be territorial.
To be perfectly honest I do not think that compromise is possible – that’s my own personal opinion – without discussing also territory. It wasn’t that long ago that Kosovo was always and is part of Serbia. It was the capital of medieval Serbia. All of our key churches and monasteries are in Kosovo.
DD: It wasn’t wonderfully governed by Serbia was it for a while, you’d agree with that, in the 80s?
AB: That’s really down to which part of history you want to look at. You would not agree that it’s wonderfully governed by the temporary institutions in Priština for the past ten years either. So what does that mean, that we go back to where we were ten years ago? And basically do away with the temporary borders and have Kosovo again as fully part of and govern by Serbia? So it really depends on which part of history you look at.
DD: Well if there is an agreement, and I’m sure a lot of people hope there will be, not just in Serbia, not just in Kosovo but across the Balkan region then European Union membership becomes a realistic hope for Serbia. But not all Serbs are excited by the prospect. How do you sell that membership to your electorate?
AB: Well first I have to say that the recognition of so-called independent Kosovo which as many people say would be a precondition for joining the EU is absolutely not true. As I’ll remind you that there are five EU member states that do not recognise the independence of Kosovo. You have Spain, you have Romania, you have Greece, you have Cyprus, you have Slovakia. So that’s not what’s on the table. What’s on the table is that we need to come to some sort of a long-term normalisation agreement because the EU does not want to import unresolved conflicts and I can fully understand that. I would share that view with the EU if I was one of the EU member states deciding on who’s going to join the EU. I also think that a long-term normalisation agreement – come kind of a compromise – is needed for us to move on that we move on, to look towards to future. Make sure that we focus on what Serbia has been focusing on thus far since 2014 and that’s jobs, income, better quality of life, more efficient more transparent public administration and rule of law. And whatever reforms we undertake we will not be able to progress unless there is a long-term normalisation agreement because what we have right now is a frozen conflict but ‘frozen conflict’ is exactly what the word says – it’s a conflict. You do not want – you can’t have – conflict on your hands in part of your territory if you want to move forwards and compete with other countries in the 21st century, which s what we want to do.
DD: Ana Brnabić, who is the prime minister of Serbia. Today is actually a good centenary for Serbia because it was on this day November 1st in 1918 that the Serbia army retook control of Belgrade, the capital.

Занимљиво да ова извор из САД, не мисли да је хрватска, румунија, грчка, булгарска део твз балкан.....кад гледаш како је сајт подељење, осећаш да сајт само потрвђује што су људи одавно мислили да је извор ништа више неко подужетак руке ЦИА.




Ако је имала било која савест, она бих то одавно урадила!

Али парадокс је што ми као народ смо још тотално вођени и престављени од исти тих наследници КОМУНИЗАМ!
У Грчкој Црква је још повезана са државом, али треба искрени ”хоштаплери” да је одвоје!





Било бих добро да слично се деси са Русије и Кине


Није ова шиптарска политика него је увек била западна.......шиптари су увек били возила ко извршавају оно што је било у идејама и планове још у 19тог веку!

Јели је Србија њима продавала униформе?
