U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Philip Gordon met in Sarajevo on June 14 with Kosovo Foreign Minister Enver Hoxhaj whom he acquainted with Washington's readiness to continue assisting Kosovo.

U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Philip Gordon met in Sarajevo on June 14 with Kosovo Foreign Minister Enver Hoxhaj whom he acquainted with Washington's readiness to continue assisting Kosovo.

"The situation is stable, Kosovo is independent and multiethnic, while the technical dialog should lessen the differences between Kosovo and Serbia," Gordon was quoted as saying by the Kosovo Foreign Ministry in a statement.

On the second day of his visit to Bosnia Herzegovina where he is attending an international conference, Hoxhaj met with Gordon and they discussed special international processes devoted to Kosovo and the U.S.'s selfless aid to these processes, a statement from the Kosovo ministry said.

Hoxhaj also met with Bosnia Herzegovina Foreign Minister Sven Alkalaj in Sarajevo concerning Kosovo's recognition by Bosnia.

The Kosovo minister also met with Bosnian High Representative Valentin Inzko, Montenegrin Prime Minister Igor Luksic, political party leaders, MPs, representatives of civil society and the media in Bosnia.

Kosovo Foreign Minister Enver Hoxhaj has said that any idea of changing borders or swapping territory "is very dangerous and could threaten the security" of the region and more broadly.

"All of the proposals and ideas for changing borders, swapping territory, and creating monoethnic states are very dangerous and could threaten the security and stability of not just our region. If divisions start in the Balkans again, who knows where and how they will stop," Hoxhaj says in an interview with the Danas newspaper.

The Kosovo minister also says: "I have understanding" for the Serbian president's statement that Serbia would never recognize Kosovo, on account of it being designed for the domestic public.
Speaking about the Serbian president, Hoxhaj describes him as "a modern leader of Serbia, who needs to invest more in Serbia's modernization."

"It was not (Boris) Tadic who lost Kosovo, but those who came before him. I think that Tadic should only bear the consequences of what was lost during the time of Milosevic. Kosovo's independence is not his personal failure. The sooner this is explained to the citizens, the better for everyone," the Kosovo minister says.
He adds that Albanians in Kosovo "wanted to become a state, equal with others in the Balkans 2030 years ago."

"I think that the socalled Greater Albania was always more discussed about in Belgrade than in Pristina or Tirana. Borders in the Balkans are a solved issue, while the state of Kosovo is the final chapter in the crisis and dissolution of the former Socialist Republic of Yugoslavia," he says.
