Hoxhaj asks Ban Ki Mooon to apply pressure on Serbia to remove illegal structures in the north
Minister Hoxhaj initially thanked the UN Secretary for the support given to the process and positive reforms in the Republic of Kosovo.
Minister Hoxhaj informed him of the recent political, economical and social development in the Republic of Kosovo and of the efforts by the Government of Kosovo in strengthening the internal statehood of Kosovo and its international subjectivity.
Speaking of the state of security in three northern Kosovo Municipalities, minister Hoxhaj requested from the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon that pressure may be exerted on Serbia in giving up the support for the illegal structures, police and paramilitary forces in Kosovos north.
The situation in this part of Kosovo is tense; barricades are still keeping roads blocked. The internal stability and the security architecture in the Balkans depend on the situation in the north, stressed Minister Hoxhaj.
At this meeting, Minister Hoxhaj reiterated that the Government of Kosovo demands that violence in the north come to an end, that there would be rule of law and dismantling of police, security and paramilitary structures that are acting in violation of all international documents.
Minister Hoxhaj also briefed Secretary Ban Ki Moon on the technical dialogue between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia.
On this point, Minister Hoxhaj stressed that the credibility of this entire process has been brought into question, as Serbia is not implementing the technical agreements reached in Brussels.
On the other hand, the United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon thanked minister Hoxhaj for the visit and expressed his appreciation for the progress reached in Kosovo as a factor of regional peace, stability and security.
