(THE PAVLOVIC TODAY) —Secretary Blinken, alongside the EU, “urges the government of Kosovo to extend the implementation period for the new license plate regime.”

Blinken told The Pavlovic Today that Kosovo “has the right to implement the license plate regime under the Brussels Agreement” but that the extension of the deadline, a request PM Kurti denied, is needed “in the interest” of the ongoing Serbia-Kosovo talks.

The United States is “disappointed and concerned that the government of Kosovo has rejected requests to do so from its international partners,” said Secretary Blinken.

Kosovo and Serbia, Blinken said, “should urgently and flexibly work to reach a comprehensive agreement on normalized relations, centered on mutual recognition. It is important that both parties reduce inflammatory rhetoric and undertake concrete actions to demonstrate their commitment to constructive collaboration to ensure a stable and prosperous future for the region.”

Secretary is urging Kosovo to reconsider and extend the deadline for license plates in Kosovo.

  1. Is it right that the DUP should fail to power share under any circumstances, and has public servants elected by the good will of the people of Northern Ireland, are they not guilty of dereliction of their elected duties and responsibilities. If this is the case, and it looks as if they would be unwilling to serve in the future, should they be discouraged from standing for election. Is there any reason in law why tbe DUP should prevent the elected parliament in Northern Ireland from attending the role they have been elected to serve. The fact that six elected DUP members can prevent the parliament of Northern Ireland by vetos, and appear to disregard the elected will of the people. I do understand their frustration with the border control situation, and their perceived need to use their elected positions has leverage to change the current arrangement, but is this the mature and grown-up way to proceed?
