President Osmani thanked the Irish Minister for the continued support provided to Kosovo.
“Kosovo's success is a joint success of the people of Kosovo and our allies. “Now we want to open a new chapter in our relations,” said President Osmani.
She stressed that she hopes that Ireland, as a supporter of Kosovo's achievements, will continue to be a supportive voice for Kosovo in international institutions, in which we are not as yet present, and will help Kosovo in its Euro-Atlantic perspective.
The President also informed Minister Coveney about the dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia. She stressed that Kosovo has always been a constructive party in this process, and has even given many constructive proposals on various issues. She reiterated the request of Kosovo institutions that the dialogue should conclude with mutual recognition between Kosovo and Serbia.
She reiterated her call that the EU should put pressure on Serbia to give up its efforts to destabilize the region.
