Kosovo's freedom a good thing for all parties

Kosovo's freedom a good thing for all parties

By Ndue Ukaj

For about ten years ago, I began studying at the University of Prishtina. . It was forbidden for us, Albanian students, studying in our mother tongue and that is why we had not possible to study in universitetslokaler, as they were available only for Serbian students and had been occupied by the Serbian regime. Several generations were instead forced to study in improvised premises, which really was no cellar. It was awful. Verkligen hemskt. Really awful. Right now, I can not understand how we could cope with the situation.

But this is only one side of the story for the other side was very tragic. We could not even hold a lecture in the basement of our "freedom" to the Serb police frequently blocked our lectures. U For some years I did not even how to feel freedom, because I could find freedom only in poetry and literature. I and my friends who studied literature did not dare to tell the police (when they stopped us on the streets) that we were students and certainly not that we studied literature and Albanian languages. Because if we had been told that they had struck us. It was forbidden for us to read the West-literature, in fact, everything was forbidden for us Many young people experienced similar events several times. I told this experience to explain only a small part, for what the Serbian regime did for many years against the Albanian people in Kosova.

Ten years after the war Kosova is on track to complete the long process to become an independent country. And in that process is going on right now, there are a few countries in the European Union (Cyprus, Romania), along with Russia that would not accept Kosovo as an independent country. It is completely utopian to imagine today that Kosovo can live together with Serbia, a country that gave us the only violence. And still, they have not changed. Today there are about 2,000 people that the Serb army has killed and no one has taken any responsibility to find the bodies were buried somewhere in Serbia. They have massacred and transported to Serbia, including children and old people. It is appalling for their families who still do not know where these bodies are buried. During this war, the Serbian regime killed about 15,000 Albanians.

Our relationship with Serbia for nearly a hundred years, from the days when they opened the occupation of Kosova has always been with violence and war. Serbia has sought to block the school, culture, the Albanian language, all development and today there are approximately one million Albanians who have been forced in one way or another to emigrate.

I and my generation who have experienced the difficult situation when we studied, had tried to make a peaceful resistance without war and violence, that is non-violence. We demonstrated almost every day for several months for human rights and against the war. There are many theories as saying that during the ten years (1990-1999), during the systematic violence, Kosovo Albanians had their influence from Mother Teresa was an Albanian nun and known throughout the world for peace. It was unusual then in Yugoslavia to create a peaceful policy and led the Kosovar Albanians leader Ibrahim Rugova, who was the author. MeBut nothing could stop the Serbian passion for power and control over the Balkans. After June 13, 1999, when NATO entered Kosova I experienced what freedom, peace, democracy and perspective.

Right now struggling Kosova for a future without violence, a future integrated in Europe and NATO and cooperation with all countries in the Balkans, including Serbia. Kosova and the Albanian people are aware of the path they have chosen and regardless of the difficult process of Kosova is ready to fight.

Now it is finally time for stability and peace and to help in that respect, the Kosova and the Balkan region support from the EU and the United States. B Balkan region had much instability earlier so this is a way to come to a peaceful region. Now is the time for positive change and the change must be reflected in the Balkans may be its place integrated in the EU. Last week, ended the direct talks between Kosovo and Serbia ended without any result was reached. It has been noted by a troika from the U.S., EU and Russia, which has tried to get a compromise between the two parties. Following these developments, the EU and the United States prepared to recognise Kosovas independence. Kosovo is sui generis cases throughout the world, it is a special case. To understand the real situation in Ballkan, with a large focus on Kosovo, which today is a major issue in the international political relationship, you have to be quite a lot about this issue in its historical context. From this point of view, it will be easier to understand what is happening today in Kosova and Ballkan.
The historical dimension is the key to understanding what is known as Kosovafrågan, the process that is now coming to an end. So what happened in the past and is happening now in Kosovo has its basis in history, the history of Serbian Academy together with the political institution has been manipulated for nationalist interests which has resulted in four wars. The perception on the true story is the best way to eliminate missförståendet and the prejudices that may affect in the major negotiations today. The area is based on a mythology that has affected all developments, even the political, and the syndrome still live in Serbia.

In fact, there is no reason to hesitate in the EU on Kosovas future status. s However, the EU needs and Sweden decide as soon as possible of an agreement on Kosova: to accept autonomy and help the process so that it leads to all Balkan countries integrate into the EU. It is important to create peace in the Balkans and it is the best way to end a long period of violence and crisis.

It seems to be no chance for peace in the Balkans without Kosovo becomes an independent country. It is not only a desire but for the Albanian people, it means above all else, in fact, it means peace, democracy, perspective, it means to live. This fact know anyone who has enough information on Kosova, it is known in Serbia, the country that has created so much problems in the Balkans throughout the 90s and who still want to rule Kosovo. It is a utopian policy because Kosova since 1999 are living outside Serbia. Serbia should reduce nationalism and instead seek a reasonable policy for a future without crises. By Kosovas independence of Serbia also relieved, therefore, Sweden should be one of the first countries to recognize independence.
