Former U.S. President Bill Clinton will arrive in Kosovo on Sunday, says Hashim Thaci. The Kosovo Albanian premier explained that Clinton will attend the unveiling of a statue of himself.
The statue has been placed on a Priština boulevard that has also been named after the former American president.
Thaci added that Clinton would be arriving in Kosovo at his invitation, and promised the former U.S. leader would be met with a “magnificent welcome”.
Thaci also invited the citizens to “appear en masse at the Bill Clinton Square”.
Clinton is “always welcome in Kosovo because this is a person who has done a lot for Kosovo globally, for its freedom and democracy in the world,” Thaci was quoted.
He also express his gratitude “to all American governments to date” for their “support to Kosovo”.
Bill Clinton was the president when his country led the NATO attacks against Serbia over the conflict in Kosovo in 1999.
