Swiss Foreign Minister Micheline Calmy-Rey told her Serbian counterpart that Switzerland seeks a quick resolution of the question of the Kosovo Albanian organ trade of kidnapped Serbs as well as other Albanian atrocities.
“The process of cooperation between the two countries is also the processing of war crimes,” Jeremic told his host.
Jeremic asked Calmy-Rey to facilitate cooperation between Serbia and the former war crimes prosecutor Carla del Ponte who is a Swiss national.
Calmy-Rey told him that she will soon answer to him on his suggestion of the enhanced cooperation on the Albanian organ trade.
Carla del Ponte is the first to have discovered that the armed branch of the Kosovo separatist government that is in power now in this Serbian province also ran an elaborate network that kidnapped Serbs civilians, then transported them to Albania where they took out their organs and killed them. Del Ponte revealed her discovery in her recent memoir.
Jeremic noted to her that the Swiss Parliamentarian at the EU, Dick Marti is traveling the region and examining the evidence on Albanian organ trade that has been gathered since del Ponte’s revelation.
Calmy-Rey said that it is the position of the Swiss government that it is important to solve the issue of Albanian organ trade.
Asked about the security that the Swiss have provided during his visit given intelligence that ethnic Albanian terrorists sought to assassinate him, Jeremic said that the his “hosts do a great job”.
Calmy-Rey told Jeremic that Switzerland still stands behind its recognition of Kosovo’s unilateral declaration.
Jeremic said that, despite that, there is room for cooperation.
In addition to the Albanian organ trade, both ministers talked about visa issues, road and air transport, social security and police cooperation.
The talks also included the free trade agreement between CEFTA and Serbia. Jeremic secured cooperation within the framework of the IMF as Serbia is a member of the Swiss-led IMF constituency.
