Kosovo’s Foreign Ministry will continue with its efforts for membership of Kosovo at international organisations such as INTERPOL, Council of Europe and other significant organisations.
Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs Rejhan Vuniqi told Telegafi that required preparations for European Council membership concluded.
“Membership at European Council remains one of the main priorities,” she said adding that they are only waiting for political decision to apply.
Vuniqi also mentioned membership at INTERPOL among the main priorities of the ministry, however she did not prefer to give details of the process due to the sensitivity of the process and challenges faced last year.
Members of the Committee for Foreign Affairs, Diaspora and Strategic Investments also confirmed that they are engaged for Kosovo’s membership at different international organisations. “It has been a bit difficult during these years for Kosovo to become member due to the set conditions. But I believe that with the help of Kosovo’s friendly countries, there are chances for Kosovo to become member of these organisations,” deputy head of this committee Time Kadriajaj said.
On the other hand, Albulena Haxhiu, MP from the opposition expressed pessimism on Kosovo’s membership at any organization. “It is unfortunate for Kosovo to have Behgjet Pacolli for a Minister of Foreign Affairs. He has replaced the entire potential of the Ministry in service of his individual businesses. Such Minister does not represent Kosovo but insults it. This is not good news and we are going to pay a high price in foreign affairs. We do not expect from such minister membership of Kosovo,” Haxhiu said.
