The government insists that the CBK Regulation will not be changed, the opposition demands coordination with allies

The Government of Kosovo continues to insist that the Regulation of the Central Bank (CBK), which prohibits the use of the dinar in Kosovo, will not be changed.

According to them, the agreement with the proposal of the European Union is only about facilitating its implementation, so that Serbian citizens in Kosovo are not harmed. On the other hand, the opposition parties criticize the executive for making the issue of the dinar a topic in the dialogue, but emphasize that any further action for its implementation must be done in coordination with international allies, especially the United States of America.

Jeton Zulfaj, advisor to Prime Minister Albin Kurti, tells KosovaPress that they are committed to finding the best ways in cooperation with partners to facilitate the transition for the implementation of the Regulation, but without affecting it.

According to him, the discussions in Brussels are aimed at facilitating the implementation of the CBK Regulation, not at changing it.

However, MP of PDK, Hajdar Beqa, tells KosovaPress that any action that is in the interest of Kosovo must be done in coordination with international allies.

LDK MP Rrezarta Krasniqi is also critical, who tells KosovaPress that the government made the dinar a topic in the dialogue, without any need.

According to her, after the last meeting in Brussels, the deputy prime minister, at the same time the chief negotiator for dialogue, Besnik Bislimi withdrew from the decision on the dinar.

Meanwhile, the MP of AAK, Time Kadrijaj, although she says that the decision on the dinar is the right one, raises concerns that the Government of Kosovo will withdraw from it.

The last meeting in Brussels, at the level of chief negotiators, was held on April 4. Deputy Prime Minister Besnik Bislimi said that they accepted the proposal of the EU emissary for dialogue, Miroslav Lajçak, but the Serbian side was not ready for compromise. The fourth Bislimi-Petkovic meeting on the dinar issue is expected to take place in two weeks in Brussels.
