Sarkozy Recognises Kosovo’s Progress

Kosovo President Fatmir Sejdiu has received a letter from French President Nikolas Sarkozy, reaffirming France’s support for the country.

The Monday letter began with words of acknowledgment of Kosovo’s progress since its unilateral declaration of independence in February last year, stating that “in the year and a half since declaring independence, your country has been able to affirm itself on the international scene and the irreversible nature of its existence has impressed everyone”.

Sarkozy cited recent achievements such as the most recent official recognition by other states of Kosovo’s independence as well as Kosovo’s acceptance into world financial institutions, which he said demonstrated “the dynamic process that Kosovo is committed to”.

“I know how important the affirmation of a stable Kosovo is for you, prosperous and on the road to Europe. I also recognise your willpower to work in strengthening friendly and trustworthy ties between our two countries,” Sarkozy wrote.

The letter was handed over to President Sejdiu by French Ambassador to Kosovo Delphine Boiron.
