Kosovo’s Deputy Prime Minister, Enver Hoxhaj, thanked Saudi Arabia for support and recognition of Kosovo’s independence but expressed disappointment with the refusal of many Arab countries to follow suit. “When independence of Kosovo was declared, we expected there would be a wave of support and recognitions from Arab and Islamic countries but this did not happen. This lack of solidarity has greatly disappointed the citizens and the government of Kosovo,” Hoxhaj said in a speech at the King Faisal Centre for Research and Islamic Studies in Riyadh. Hoxhaj highlighted Kosovo’s appreciation for countries of the Arab League and the Organisation for Islamic Cooperation that have so far recognised Kosovo but added: “It is absurd that ten years after independence, many Arab countries have not yet recognised independence of Kosovo.”
