PRISTINA – The Members of the Kosovo Assembly adopted a resolution on suspension of Belgrade-Pristina dialogue unitl Ramush Haradinaj is released.

The Kosovo assembly on Thursday passed a resolution seeking a suspension of the dialogue with Belgrade until an unconditional release of Ramus Haradinaj, a former Kosovo Liberation Army commander wanted by Serbia for war crimes committed in June 1999.

He was arrested in Basel on January 4 by French police on a Serbian warrant, but a court in Colmar, France, has provisionally released him pending a decision on a request to extradite him to Serbia, recently postponed for the second time until April 6, Tanjug reports.

The resolution, passed with 71 votes to one, urges the Kosovo government to make Haradinaj’s release a priority and request that the EU force Serbia to scrap all indictments and arrest warrants pertaining to Kosovo Albanians, Pristina media reported.

The resolution was tabled by the opposition, led by Haradinaj’s Alliance for the Future of Kosovo.
