BELGRADE – The United States of America do not support any individual candidate for the president of Kosovo, confirmed the US Embassy in Prishtina, following Foreign Minister Hashim Thaci’s statement that the US support his candidacy.
Political analysts said that Thaci is trying to exploit his visit to the US, pretending he has the support of the US to become the next president, Gazeta Express reports.
Halil Matoshi, a political analyst, said that the US or any other democratic country, in relations to another democracy (as Kosovo is supposed to be) would never support a specific candidate. They, he said, support democracy.
“It turns out that Hashim Thaci is trying to exploit even the Americans in his personal fight to become the next president, damaging our country’s fragile democracy”, said Matoshi.
Imer Mushkolaj, a political expert, said that Hashim Thaci is trying to exploit his visit to the US, trying to portray it as a personal support in his endeavor to become the next president.
