Engel on the Kosovo-Israel agreement: Great day for both countries

Former US Congressman Eliot Engel has congratulated Kosovo and Israel on the agreement signed for full diplomatic relations. Through a post on his Twitter account, Engel says it's a great day for both countries. "My warmest congratulations to the state of Israel and the Republic of Kosovo for the establishment of diplomatic relations. This is a great day for both countries," Engel wrote as he distributed the news announcing the achievement of diplomatic relations between the two countries. On Monday, the acting Minister of Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Meliza Haradinaj-Stublla, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Israel, Gabriel Ashkenazi, signed the document which states that the two countries establish diplomatic relations, to increase cooperation in many fields. The two ministries have also signed a memorandum for political consultations and a memorandum for development cooperation.

The document was signed in four copies, in Albanian, English, Hebrew and Serbian. "When our partners are united, the United States is stronger. Congratulations to Kosovo and Israel ", writes the American Embassy in Prishtina. This recognition is a product of the agreement sponsored by former US President Donald Trump, in early September last year.
