Kosovo Should Not Neglect Proposals to Redraw Borders in the Balkans, Warns Mustafa

Isa Mustafa has called on the Kosovo government not to neglect the unofficial papers appearing on the regional media suggesting redrawing of borders in the Balkans.

“The government should be prepared against these ‘non-papers’ because they can be presented as ‘papers’ in the dialogue table or in the offices of any powerful European state,” the former Prime Minister and former leader of the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) said in an interview on Friday.

He said the dialogue with Serbia has been difficult for any government, and it will be particularly so for the ruling Vetevendosje who have opposed it.

Kosovo and Serbia leaders are scheduled to resume the dialogue in June after a long hiatus.

Last month, media outlets in the Balkans have published non-papers allegedly drafted by government officials of several EU member countries and sent to EU institutions to unofficially propose the redrawing of borders in the region along ethnic lines.

No one has admitted authorship, nor has any European leader admitted to have ever seen any such non-paper. Country leader in the region and EU top diplomats have denied their existence and such proposals having ever been discussed.
