Kosovo's MPs found out at a July 1 session that the Albanians living in the Presevo Valey, an area in the south of Serbia, were in an extremely difficult position, having no prospects whatsoever.
The parliament used a special session to warn that the Albanians in Southern Serbia had been exposed to ethnic, cultural and social discrimination.
Ismail Kurtesi, the Self Determination party's MP, argued that their situation was worsening, suggesting that parliament should make it one of its conclusions that the Presevo Valley deserved to be part of the Kosovo-Serbia negotiations.
Arban Abrasi, his peer from the Democratic Alliance of Kosovo, insisted that Kosovo's institutions should take steps to improve the position of Albanians in Serbia's south, describing their experience as deteriorating daily.
"We need to create specific mechanisms and projects immediately, while outlining a long-term strategy, too, in order to improve the lives of Albanians in the Presevo Valley, and protect their ethnic identity," Abrasi said.
