Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said today in Pristina that Kosovo is an inependent country and deserves to be recognised as such.
“I am proud for everything you and us have done to achieve this. I will never forget the war years, people chanting ‘Thank you USA’. I think the U.S. has done the right thing. I am honoured to be here with you. Kosovo is an independent country and therefore deserves to be recognised,” Albright said.
Albright, visiting Kosovo on the 20th anniversary of NATO troops deployment, made the comments after meeting Kosovo leaders and being awarded the Order of Freedom by President Hashim Thaci and a postage stamp with her image by Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj.
