The debate on territorial changes has been the main topic of the dialogue process between Kosovo and Serbia for several weeks, an issue that would seem to have caught the main politicians and parties of Kosovo off guard.
Not only that, because Tirana officially - through its foreign minister Ditmir Bushati - had declared that the Albanian government was not at all enthusiastic about the idea of exchanges of territories between Kosovo and Serbia.
Among the various comments and analyzes, the President of the Republic of Albania, Ilir Meta, was missing, who reacted for the first time to the debate on the correction of the borders between Kosovo and Serbia. In an interview for "Albanian Daily News"Ilir Meta said that the dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia was not established to change reality, but to guide the process of his admission, in the name of peace and stability.
Essential prerequisites for the European integration process of both countries. Any discussion or debate - as reported by Ilir Meta in the interview - which helps to understand and accept this reality, is welcome or welcome. Any other deviation from this reality, in addition to arousing populist emotions and rhetoric, brings no other benefit.
The Balkans have undergone profound transformations in the last two decades, a period in which the United States and the European Union have seriously invested in the territory. One of the biggest and most successful investments was the independence of Kosovo and the ongoing dialogue between Serbia and Kosovo, in the interests of normalization of relations and stability, peace and long-term security in the region.
The historical past of the Balkans is unfortunately linked to the changes of the border, to ethnic cleansing and to the violent displacement of the population, which have been associated with great problems such as hostility, war and hatred. The agreement that should be reached between the parties is important to generate positive energy, to help the spirit of coexistence and harmony, and to finally heal the sense of hatred sown by the past and history.
