"Today I received the invitation letter and the order to appear before the high prosecutor of the Specialist Prosecutor's Office in The Hague, on March 12, 2019," Kuci wrote in a statement sent to local media on Thursday.
He added that he will "fulfil the obligation and will respond to this order".
The parliamentary group of the biggest Kosovo opposition party, the Democratic League of Kosovo, LDK on Tuesday demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj and his deputy, Fatmir Limaj, after a statement from European Commissioner Johannes Hahn that visa liberalisation with the EU is more likely to come by 2020 than the hoped-for end of 2018.
A roundtable organised on Wednesday in Kosovo by BIRN Kosovo's show "Jeta ne Kosove" heard local politicians warn that a territorial swap between Serbia and Kosovo could worsen regional instability.
Kosovo opposition parties have called for an extraordinary parliamentary session on September 4 to put a resolution to a vote which they say will protect the country's territorial integrity amid controversial suggestions of a land swap with Serbia as part of a final deal between Pristina and Belgrade.
Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj has been criticised for again meeting a controversial figure and power-broker in the Serb-run northern municipalities, Milan Radoicic.
The head of the Belgrade-backed Kosovo Serb party, Lista Srpska, Goran Rakic and Radoicic - who was recently elected as the deputy head - met Haradinaj at his office on Thursday.
