    Default Thousands Protest In Kosovo Over Possible Serbia Land Swap

    Thousands of Kosovo citizens protested in the capital, Pristina, on Saturday in a rally organised by the opposition Vetevendosje against President Hashim Thaci and his latest proposals on border correction with Serbia.

    Thousands of people from across Kosovo descended on central Pristina on Saturday for a protest organised by the country's main opposition force, Vetevendosje, against President Thaci and his push in recent months for "border corrections" between Kosovo and Serbia.



    During the rally, Vetevenodje's leader, Albin Kurti, told the crowd gathered at Skanderbeg Square that they would not accept "new pain and new compromises", referring to a possible final deal with Serbia that would include border changes.

    As if the poverty and corruption were not enough, this president showed up with painful compromises, not painful for Serbia but for Kosovo, Kurti said, adding that the border correction is a mistake for Kosovo.

    In an event that coincided with the rally, President Thaci made a rare visit to the Serb-run north of the country, stopping in the town of Zubin Potok and taking a boat ride on the nearby disputed Gazivode Lake.

    The addition of Kosovo police being present sparked reaction from Serbia, with the head of the Serbian governments office for Kosovo, Marko Djuric, stating that Serbian military and police were on high alert as a result.

    Serbian Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic also announced that he had "ordered the police director to put all special and special police units in the state of most readiness" as a result of what he called "an Albanian attack against the north of Kosovo."

    However, NATOs peacekeeping force in Kosovo, KFOR, confirmed the police personnel were in the area as a security measure during Thacis visit.

    The blue (Medvedja) in the map below is not part of the deal AFAIK, but the others are:

    Why not? It makes sense from an ethnic perspective.

    It may now that the referendum has failed.
    The Georgi Efremov plan could be dusted off yet.

    No secrets regarding Bosnia. So we could see borders changing, but this won't happen peacefully.

    @Mingle do you favour the serbian side or the albanian side. I think it would be interesting to know where you stand since you post alot on the balkans and who are you favourite balkanic nations?

    But I undergo all things for the saints, so that they may have salvation in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. This is a true saying: If we undergo death with him, then will we be living with him: If we go on to the end, then we will be ruling with him: if we say we have no knowledge of him, then he will say he has no knowledge of us: If we are without faith, still he keeps faith, for he will never be untrue to himself.
