Ruling party MP Arbereshe Kryeziu Hyseni was criticised for saying that finding ethnic Albanian missing persons from the Kosovo war should be prioritised over looking for Serbs who disappeared.
The exhumation process at a mass war grave in southern Serbia has been completed with the remains of at least nine individuals recovered, including two identified as victims of the Rezalle massacre in 1999.
Leaders of missing persons associations have told Prishtina Insight that they feel excluded from the latest phase of the dialogue, and are not optimistic about the details of a draft agreement reached in Brussels revealed on Monday.
Families whose loved ones are still missing 21 years after the war in Kosovo continue to press Kosovo and Serbian authorities to work together to locate and identify the 1,641 people that are yet to be found.
Despite slow progress, Kosovo has taken initiative to address atrocities committed during the war. Now the country must focus its efforts on RECOM, education reform, and missing persons.
