Kosovo President Vjosa Osmani rejected the forming of the Community of Serb Municipalities, saying that the authorities in Pristina do not want a second Republika Srpska.

“We will not amend the constitution or allow any kind of union of towns and communities which could create a mono-ethnic power structure in our country. That is not in our interest nor in the interest of the region or our allies,” she told German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung prior to a visit to Berlin later this week.

She is quoted as categorically rejecting the possibility of changes to the constitution to implement the agreement reached by Belgrade and Pristina in Brussels to form the Community of Serb Municipalities.

“Allowing a Serb association of towns and municipalities in Kosovo would be just a prelude for Serbia to a second Republika Srpska. We do not want a non-functional state like Bosnia-Herzegovina,” Osmani said.
