The Mayor of Presevo Ardita Sinani said that Serbia is following “a denationalizing plan” against ethnic Albanians in the Presevo Valley and called on Albanian and Kosovar authorities to align in order to protect the rights of the Albanian people beyond their borders.

In an interview with Franko Egro on Balkan Talks, Sinani described Vucic’s way of doing politics as “nationalistic”, a cultural “neoconservative” and “neoliberal” when it comes to economic matters.

“Vucic hides behind a pro-European image but in fact, he feeds the idea of an authoritarian Serbia who infringes human rights. Unfortunately, he’s being pampered by the West for geopolitical and geostrategic reasons”, Presevo’s mayor said.

In regards to the passivization of Albanian mailing addresses in the Presevo Valley, she reiterates that it was the Helsinki Committee who ruled it as a “modern ethnic cleansing via administrative methods”.

She highlighted that Serbia is not respecting a 2001 agreement for the return of the Albanian people, but instead is doing the complete opposite by forcing them to leave.

Around 6,000 Albanians no longer appear in Serbian records. Sinani explains that the situation is more serious in Medvegja and Bujanovc, although a rising tendency has also been seen in Presevo.
