Albin Kurti speaks after withdrawing from the decision on license plates and says that Kosovo will apply as a candidate country in the EU
Albin Kurti has spoken for the first time about his decision to withdraw from the license plate agreement, obeying the international appeal to postpone its implementation for another term.
The withdrawal was not well received by a part of politics, such as the Social Democratic Party, whose exponents hit Prime Minister Kurti with a cherry a few days ago, for not maintaining a coherent position, even calling him in the opposite direction of the interests of Kosovo, more specifically an acceptance of the association of Serbian municipalities in the north.
But Kurti, in an interview with the well-known journalist Michael Martens, in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, said that there was no other choice in the face of pressure and information that the situation in the north could escalate.
"The American ambassador had more information than I did about the situation in the north", Kurti is quoted as saying, without going into further details.
The journalist has published only a part of the interview, which has not yet been published in full.
In this interview, Albin Kurti also stated that Kosovo will officially apply for membership in the European Union in December.
