“Kosovo Prime Minister, Ramush Haradinaj, in a press conference on Friday said the Government has proceeded to the Assembly a report on the results of the dialogue with Serbia. He said the report represents factual situation, noting that Kosovo’s priority is implementation of the Agreement on energy, reached during the EU-facilitated talks with Serbia in Brussels.
Haradinaj reiterated that there will be no talks with Serbia on Kosovo’s partition and urged political parties to reach a consensus on the dialogue. Commenting on President Hashim Thaci’s statement that there are no red lines in the dialogue with Serbia, Haradinaj said that whoever violates the Constitution of Kosovo will be dismissed. ‘We have the Constitution and whoever disrespects it violates the contract of the Declaration of Kosovo’s Independence,’ Haradinaj said. The Government during its Friday’s meeting has approved a report on the dialogue. Haradinaj said that Kosovo MPs will have a chance to be informed on the achievements and challenges of the dialogue with Serbia.” (Gazeta Express)

The head of the Kosovo Office, Marko Djuric, reacted almost simultaneously with Srpska Lista, confirming that Oliver Ivanovic will have a street in North Mitrovica named after him, ‘as per his credits.'” (KosSev)
