Croatian PM’s first visit to Kosovo on Wednesday sees warm words and two agreements signed on European integration and transport.
Leaders of Kosovo and Croatia pledged to deepen ties between their two countries on the occasion of the visit to Pristina of the Croatian Prime Minister, Jadranka Kosor.
Kosor, visiting Kosovo for the first time as PM, was welcomed by a Kosovo Security Force ceremonial guard and hosted by her counterpart, Hashim Thaci.
The Croatian leader said that both Croatia and Kosovo had supported each other in their respective conflicts with Serbia, helping to form a deep friendship between the nations.
“This friendship between our peoples above all has been proved in the war against the tyrant [Slobodan] Milosevic, against Greater Serbian aspirations, and both nations have shown success and decisiveness,” Kosor said in a press conference.
Thaci noted that Croatia had been one of the first countries to recognise Kosovo’s independence in 2008 and continued to be a key ally.
“This friendship is natural not just because of our common past in the war for freedom but above all, because of our joint vision of Euro-Atlantic values,” Thaci said.
The countries signed two agreements on European Integration and road transport.
