Pristina sees "Greater Serbia" in Belgrade's dialogue bid

Edita Tahiri says Belgrade's call for Serbs and Albanians to engage in a comprehensive dialogue in order to achieve peace is "fake."

This has been reported by the Pristina-based Albanian language daily Epoka e Re.
According to Tahiri, who serves as a minister without portfolio in the Kosovo government in charge of the Belgrade-Pristina negotiations, Belgrade is in this way "revealing the hegemonistic Greater Serbia project."

She also believes that the Serbian government is "not interested in good relations between the two peoples."

"(Serbia) recognizing Kosovo," Tahiri continued, "is the essential condition to open a new chapter of peaceful relations between Serbs and Albanians."

Kosovo is Serbia's southern province where ethnic Albanians unilaterally declared independence in 2008. Serbia considers this a violation of its territorial integrity.
