The US State Department issued another red card to Sali Berisha for the violent attempt to seize the PD headquarters last Saturday.
Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Southern and Central Europe Gabriel Escobar, in an interview with VOA, condemned the violence.
“I think it is unfortunate that someone will use violence and not the ballot box, in an attempt to take control of a political party. We condemn this. Not everyone who claims to be a member of the Democratic Party is an important partner of ours right now“, Says Escobar.
Escobar also spoke about the role that Washington will play in the Kosovo-Serbia talks:
“We will be very engaged in this process not only in Serbia and Kosovo but in the region in general and not only for political issues but also for economic issues.”.
Meanwhile, on Saturday, at the moment when the situation in the PD yard started to become tense, the American Embassy said that “The United States is deeply concerned about rising tensions at Democratic Party headquarters as protesters use force. The response stated that “those who initiate violence or violate the law will be held accountable.”.
