Kosovo’s parliament elected a new government on Wednesday with Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti promising to reach a deal on normalizing ties with Serbia.
The new government of Hoti, of the center-right Democratic League of Kosovo, was supported by 61 deputies in the 120-seat parliament after weeks of legal wrangling, Reuters reports.
“We will not allow any change of the borders or exchange of territories,” Hoti told MPs. Serbia does not recognize the independence of its breakaway province.
Hoti was deputy PM in the previous government of Albin Kurti, from leftist party Vetevendosje. The cabinet was dismissed in a no confidence vote in March after disputes over its handling of the coronavirus crisis and lifting tariffs on Serbian goods.
