Prishtinë, 21 dhjetor 2019: Ensuring peace in the world is one of the permanent objectives of all human civilizations. It is obligation, not only a moral, but firstly civilization of the generations, responsibility that each era imposes. Generations of the early XXI century, called, century of a new hope of humanity have huge responsibility, because all together, as a civilization of new globalizations are trying to build a new world, a peace that guarantees our common present and the future. As never before, those who are called to build a new peace, a world without violence, without wars, a world where the common ideal among all would be peace and social-economic prosperity, falls the burden for call to bring our strengths together in our journey towards common freedom and democracy, equal for all. This burden and challenge of history, which determines the new era in which we do not live, nor the academic brains can be excluded.
To fight for universal rights, freedom, for a world where there will be no more colonies, ruler and ruled, as well as for national freedom, for liberation and for state building, at the same time means that, as peoples, nations to contribute to the peace and security in the world, including regions and states we come from. Based on this new political philosophy, at the level of understanding of the world peace, the people of Kosova won its freedom without encroaching the freedom of any people in the region, so, nor the freedom of Serbian people and, as the International Court of Justice witnessed, in accordance with the international law standards, legally and in compliance with all UN documents, also in accordance with Resolution 1244 created an independent state, the Republic of Kosova. The Democratic state of Kosova, as the other countries is setting an example in building and strengthening peace and stability in the region.
I would not detach any part of the Kosova’s history and its difficult paths towards liberation, freedom and the creation of the Kosova state, as the Serbian’s state propaganda aided and strongly inspired by the yesterdays and today’s Serbian academics if they had not continued rushed into speculative propaganda against the freedom of the Kosova’s people, our right as a nation to decide for our future. Serbian state political propaganda, in cooperation with the academics and religious, inspired by the false myth of Serbia, they are continuing to speculate for Kosova under the pretext that in question is the breakaway of the part of its territory.
However, Kosova, its territory, which at the time of the Ottoman Empire was vilayet with the self administration rights, at any phase of history was not part of Serbian state territory, not even in medieval times when the Serbian state was founded with the base in Raska , Krusevac and Smederevë, not even at the time of the Berlin Congress, when Serbia came up with the gained independence. Kosova, during the Balkan Wars, the 1912 / 1913 was occupied from Serbia by force, on 1918 was annexed as colony in royal Yugoslavia, then again was annexed by Serbia in 1945 and de facto, in 1989, after the countermand of autonomy was reoccupied by the Republic of Serbia. In the summer of 1999 by the liberation war aided by NATO, Kosova was liberated from the occupation.
The state of Kosova, which for many issues is conscience of the European democracy, today is establishing welfare of its citizens strengthens the peace, creating stability in the region and is opening a bright future for all its citizens regardless of ethnicity, religion or ideology. The people of Kosova, its leadership, all citizens with all their capabilities, supported also by the international factors are becoming part of the project, the companion for European path where dominates peace, security, cooperation, not conflict and without a hatred. Therefore, an independent Kosova, despite objections that are coming to us from the neighboring state Serbia, bravely continues to build European identity, the Western, being, even us as a European citizens, voice of the new perspective of the united Europe. Kosovo, as written in the Declaration of the Kosova’s Independence, approved by the delegates of the Kosovo’s Assembly on February 17, 2008, “[…] committed for peace and stability in our region of Southeastern Europe “! On the oath of representatives of the Kosovar people are building the foundations of the present and future of the European’s Kosova state and emerging commitments, responsibilities to contribute to peace and security in the region
