Kosovo happy not to have a foreign policy

Kosovo has no foreign policy, ‘led by America’ – PM

20 Apr, 2018

Kosovo is “part of a club led by America” and is happy to have Washington manage its foreign policy, the prime minister of Serbia’s renegade province said in a TV interview.

“We are part of Europe and cooperate with Brussels and Berlin,” Ramush Haradinaj told Serbia’s Happy TV in a three-hour recorded interview aired this week. “However, when it comes to foreign policy we’re part of a club of countries led by America. We don’t have a problem with admitting that. We don’t have time for the world’s problems.”

Haradinaj’s admission was related to the case of six Turkish nationals arrested at the end of March in Kosovo over alleged links to schools funded by the exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen. They were quickly extradited to Ankara, but Haradinaj claimed he was not informed of this, and sacked the director of Kosovo’s intelligence service and the minister of security.

“I respect Turkey and we have good relations, but I work for Kosovo,” Haradinaj said.

Ankara has accused Gulen of being behind the July 2016 coup attempt, and has sought his extradition from the US, where he currently lives.
