The proposed Draft Law on Protection of the Kosovo Liberation Army's Values failed to pass on Thursday after only 35 MPs out of a total of 120 lawmakers in the Kosovo Assembly voted in favour.
"A total of 36 deputies participated [in the vote], 35 votes in favour, one against and no abstentions," said Kosovo Assembly speaker Vjosa Osmani.
Lajcak told reporters in Pristina that he knew the dates of the meetings for the resumption of the dialogue in Brussels, but that he could not announce them for now, Pristina media reported.
"I have dates, but I can't share them with you for now, because I have to coordinate with partners and we don't have time to lose", Lajcak said.
"I am ashamed to even answer to the question whether Serbia will recognize Kosovo on the eve of Vidovdan. I am ashamed, because it says more about them. It will never be on our agenda. It speaks about what others have done," he said.
He pointed out that we are facing a difficult period, which will commence with the arrival of Miroslav Lajcak.
His flight from Zurich to Tirana yesterday was canceled.
Lajcak wrote on his Twitter account that after yesterday's complications with the trip, the international community took action and is now on the road, thanks to the Swiss army.
"I am looking forward to the official start of my visit to Kosovo later today," Lajcak wrote.
