Do you think the rule of law is functioning in Kosovo yet?
I would like for zero-tolerance against crime to be implemented, for laws to be in line with the constitution, for all people to be equal before the law; basically, these are the values of democracy. I think we are going in the right direction, slowly but steady; perhaps we are a bit impatient, but for a country emerging from a communist system, and from repression and war, it takes time to establish grounds for a functional rule of law.
Gradually, the time is coming when the rule of law is going to function. We have great hopes about this. Some "fish" are being arrested, but hopefully EULEX [the European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo] will arrest some "whales," too. They have very strong nets to catch the "whales."
Some other states are nowhere near having a functional rule of law, but they are already in the EU. So my wish is to accelerate this process. I want Kosovo not to be closed place, where it is difficult to communicate with neighboring countries and EU countries. I want our state to become stronger to enter into the EU, NATO, and democratic processes.
