Romas and Ashkanlis Ask to Participe in Status Delegation
Roma and Ashkanli representatives want to be part of the Kosovo Negotiations
Team and of all working groups for status talks.
The Chairman of the Party of the United Romas, Zylfi Merxha made these comments
at the Forum “Kosovo’s Final Status and position of Romas and Ashkanlis”.
“We should take part in all those groups, because we are part of this country,”
Merxha said. He said that the situation of Romas and Ashkanlis in Kosovo,
except in certain areas, is good.
“However we lack employment and education. Not even one Roma is employed in
UNMIK or in the institutions of Kosovo,” Merxha said, adding that unemployment
is a problem that other communities are facing, too.
UNMIK Official for Communities, Patricha Varin said in her address that
protection of minorities will be one of the most important issues during the
“Therefore your leaders should be united on the issues having to do with your
future,” she said.
