Kosovo PM Kurti deems the Washington Agreement unconstitutional

Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti has not commented his Government’s position on the Washington Agreement signed by former US President Donald Trump, separately, with Kosovo and Serbia, as part of the two countries’ dialogue. Kurti was summoned by MPs to discuss his Cabinet’s position on the Washington agreement, which is supported also by the administration of President Joe Biden.

Instead of explaining his position on the commitments taken by Kosovo when signing the deal in September 2020, Kurti has accused former prime minister Avdullah Hoti who signed the agreement, saying that he made unconstitutional actions when pledging to a one-year moratorium on Kosovo’s bid to join international organisations.

One of the points of the Washington deal was to work with the US on “a feasibility study for the purpose of sharing with Serbia the disputed Ujman Lake, as a reliable water and energy supply.

On 24 June the US Department of Energy published a feasibility report on the management of the Ujman lake in accordance with the signed deal.
