Commenting article: Kadri Veseli: Kosovo Could Learn from Bulgaria’s Transition Experience

The President of the Assembly of Kosovo, Kadri Veseli, was in Bulgaria at the end of last week for participation in the third plenary session of the South-East European Cooperation Process (SEECP) Parliamentary Assembly, which was one of the final events of Bulgaria’s chairmanship-in-office of SEECP. Mr. Veseli has served as President of the Assembly of Kosovo since December 2014. In May 2016, he was elected unanimously as leader of the largest party in Kosovo, the Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK). In an interview for Novinite, Mr. Veseli shared his views on the importance of regional cooperation, the state of bilateral relations between Bulgaria and Kosovo and the progress of Kosovo on its path to European integration.

Mr. Veseli, with Bulgaria completing its chairmanship of the SEECP at the end of June, how successful do you think the SEECP has been in enhancing stability, security and cooperation in the region?

We are very thankful of what Bulgaria is doing, especially its very positive role in creating a good environment here in the region and maintaining good relationship between the Balkan countries. Bulgaria also plays a positive role in SEECP which we joined only a couple of years ago. I think SEECP plays a very positive role and in the case of the Parliamentary Assembly it brings parliamentarians together to discuss and share our views and at the same time to pursue initiatives which are of mutual interest at regional level. This is very important. We have very good bilateral relations with Bulgaria, but at the same time initiatives such as SEECP, which started exactly from Sofia, are very important and we will keep on this agenda because it is of interest to all Southeast European countries. It is very important to work together and to share the experiences. Bulgaria has very interesting transition period and that is important for us as we want to learn what was successful and at the same time get to know what was the negative experience so we can avoid that in our case. In these terms, the leadership of Bulgaria is really excellent and we are very thankful to them.

Yane - why would Serbia still want a crummy piece of wasteland full of Albanians? They're lucky to have managed to get rid of it....
