Kosovo Press Review – 18 September, 2012

US President Barack Obama may unite Kosovo’s Atifete Jahjaga and Serbia’s Tomislav Nikolic. The corrupted officials within the government of Kosovo, should leave their posts.



Internationals are putting a lot of efforts that during the dinner called by the US President Barack Obama, on September 24th, Kosovo’s and Serbia’s presidents Atifete Jahjaga and Tomislav Nikolic shake hands. The consultations for the upcoming political dialogue between the two, are left to EU’s High Representative Catherine Ashton, who is addressing the issue with Hashim Thaci and Tomiclas Nicolic. She planned to meet the two in the same room, or in separate meetings.


The involvement of a certain part of Hashim Thaci’s cabinet in different corruption affairs, raises the need to get rid of them from the executive, and the necessity for radical changes in the government composition, the lawmakers urge.


US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is expected to visit Kosovo during October. Sources told the paper that Clinton will be among the 400 guests that the Kosovo President Atifete Jahjaga called for an international conference on strengthening the role of the women, to be held in Pristina. Clinton will use her visit to encourage both Pristina and Belgrade to continue the dialogue
