Ragmi Mustafa, president of the National Council of Albanians (NSA) said this on Thursday.
In this way, Tanjug said, he confirmed that Bujanovac mayor Shaip Kamberi, member of the Serbian National Assembly Fatmir Hasani and he did not send a new letter to Federica Mogherini and Hashim Thaci.
Mustafa said that Belgrade media today instead repeated the news from four months ago.
According to him, this was done to "deliberately raise tensions at a critical time before the making of important decisions."
However, Pristina "annexing" the so-called Presevo valley - an area in the southern part of central Serbia with an ethnic Albanian population - is not merely "old news" - it is also an almost constant topic among Pristina politicians.
Today, Hashim Thaci repeated in an interview for Radio Free Europe that he asked for the three municipalities - Bujanovac, Presevo, and Medvedja - to join Kosovo during a recent meeting in Berlin.
