Happy Independence Day!

Wishing you all a happy independence day. Today the Republic of Kosovo marks 16 years of statehood.

Though many challenges remain, Kosovo continues to build a modern European society, based on values we all share. Nurturing these values in this corner of Europe is crucial for our future as a continent and we are blessed to have allies and neighbors that aspire to these same values.

This year is special one because citizens of our young republic can finally travel visa-free around Europe, giving them a chance to grow, learn and push Kosovo forward.

While many great things are happening, we mustn’t forget that there are envious forces working day and night to undo progress our societies have made. From the faraway borderlands of this continent to the East, a stones-throw away from the Volga, right in the heart of South East Europe on the banks of the Danube, and brewing inside Europe itself, there are people whose hate is ready to destroy all we have built. We cannot allow them to succeed.

Happy Independence Day. Cherish it. Celebrate it.

Happy Independence Day

Happy Independence Day to Republic of Kosovo! 13 years of statehood! We would also like to take this opportunity to wish our new government lots of success in making this tiny European state a better place for its children and its people.

Better days are ahead of us! 🇽🇰 ❤️

Israel recognizes Kosovo

Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced yesterday that Israel has decided to establish diplomatic relations with Kosovo, making Israel the 117th country to recognize Kosovo as an independent and free state.

We wholeheartedly thank the people of Israel for extending their friendship and compassion. This is an important step to acknowledge the suffering and struggle that both peoples are familiar with. The people of Kosovo had to fight for their right to exist in defiance of a relentless and cruel foe, a fight that was far from symbolic, and one that continues to this day.

Thank you Israel!

Jamaica and Kosovo (update)

Update: Recent developments indicate that Jamaica has not yet recognized Kosovo. Authorities in Prishtina have prematurely acknowledged this recognition without having received the Verbal Note.

While this situation gets clarified, we do extend our friendship and hope to be soon recognized by Jamaica into the family of free countries.

Thank you Jamaica!

Happy Independence Day!

To all the peoples and countries of the world, thank you for extending your friendship and welcoming Kosovo in your midst. Wishing all Kosovars around the world a Happy Independence Day!

Happy 12th year of freedom and independence.
