PristinaÂ – Egypt will very soon recognise Kosovoâ€™s independence, says Abdullah Al Eshal, Cairoâ€™s former deputy foreign minister and counsel to President Hosni Mubarak.Â
He said to be willing to send back to his home country a message of the new reality created in Kosovo, in order for Egypt not to postpone the recognition of Kosovoâ€™s independence from Serbia.
â€œI want to inform you that recognition from Egypt will come very soon, after being informed of your history and your efforts in state-building. Our country is willing to contribute to peace and stability in the region,â€ pledged Al Eshal in Pristina.
A prominent Albanian activist in Egypt, Beqir Ismaili, who organised the round table entitled â€œKosovo and Egyptâ€, said now is the time for Cairo and other Arab countries to recognise Kosovoâ€™s independence, in order to facilitate its integration.
The conference was attended by an Egyptian delegation with the aim of informing them of the progress of Kosovo state-building.
Kosovo declared independence from Serbia on February 17.
Until now, it has been recognised by 52 states around the world. Malaysia was the latest to announce the recognition on Friday.
