Former NATO commander in Kosovo:Recognition of Kosovo Indepedence a big mistake on EU’s part

In an interview for the Milan daily “Corriere dela Serra” Mini emphasized
that there is a justified fear of a domino effect in the event of the
secession of Kosovo.  …
Recognition of Kosovo’s independence is something in which the  EU is making a mistake because it brings into question international law  based on the sovereignty of countries, said former NATO commander in Kosovo
General Fabio Mini.

“The USA does not believe in this right as demonstrated in Iraq. If the UN  recognizes Kosovo tomorrow everyone will have the right to ask for the same:  Northern Ireland, the Chechens, the Basques, etc.,” assessed Mini.

The Italian general does not understand the international community’s hurry  to recognize the unilateral proclamation of independence of the southern  Serbian province because, he said, a few years is not enough for such
processes.

In an interview for the Milan daily “Corriere dela Serra” Mini emphasized  that there is a justified fear of a domino effect in the event of the  secession of Kosovo.

He assessed that Italy would be making “a horrible mistake” if it recognized  Kosovo, even bigger than its recognition in record time of Croatia in 1992.

“The independence of Kosovo will be only serve the ruling clans, not  mordinary citizens, who no longer have confidence because only 45 percent of  them voted in last year’s elections,” said Mini.

He emphasized that “independence will serve only /Kosovo prime minister/  Hashim Thaci who has business interests in oil, Bexhet Pacoli, Ramush Haradinaj, who is being tried for war crimes in The Hague, Agim Ceku and
others like them.”

In his opinion, a possible independent Kosovo will only be “a new duty-free  zone for money arriving from the East because Monte Carlo, Cyprus [and]  Madeira are no longer reliable.”

“A new place is needed where banks will be opened,” concluded Mini.
