Prishtina, June 5th 2019 – The President of the country, Hashim Thaçi, participated today at the manifestation of the Kosovo Olympic Committee held in honour of the World Environment and Sports Day.

The head of state said that during these 11 years of independence, the greatest sports successes were achieved by women, and this is an additional encouragement to further continue with the achievement of forthcoming successes.

“This is an additional encouragement for you to participate in sports and for the institutions of Kosovo to do more in order for you to achieve greater successes,” said President Thaçi.
