Biden: The United States remains a dedicated partner and friend to Kosovo in these endeavors

The head of the White House has sent a congratulatory telegram to the acting President, Vjosa Osmani, on the 13th anniversary of Kosovo's independence.

The letter states that the US is interested in continuing cooperation with Kosovo and helping its integration on the European path. It is also emphasized that a great deal of work should be done on mutual recognition between Kosovo and Serbia.

“The bonds between our people remain strong, based on a shared commitment to Kosovo’s continued development and your enduring strength as a sovereign, independent, multiethnic and democratic country. We look forward to working with Kosovo’s next government to move Kosovo forward on its European path. There is a great deal of work to be done, including securing a comprehensive normalization agreement with Serbia centered on mutual recognition that strengthens the rule of law, confronting the global COVID-19 pandemic, and fostering economic growth that enables a prosperous future for all Kosovo’s citizens.

The United States remains a dedicated partner and friend to Kosovo in these endeavors. And on a personal note, Kosovo continues to hold a special place for Biden family in honor of the time our late son Beau Biden spent working to ensure peace, justice, and the rule of law for all the people of Kosovo," writes President Biden.
