The Kosovo president, who was in Turkey on Friday where he met with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, told the Anadolu agency on Saturday that "the current close ties" between Moscow and Belgrade "need not be an obstacle to better Russian relations with Kosovo."

"Kosovo is not an enemy of Russia. Kosovo can have a dynamic role on the road to peace and stability. Changing the attitude of Russia towards Kosovo will make a positive contribution to the region," said Thaci.

"All prejudice must disappear. In history, Kosovo has never harmed Russia. Therefore, Kosovo does not deserve this unfair attitude and punishment," Thaci said.
