Albanian Foreign Minister Gent Cakaj paid today an official visit to Kosovo where he was received by his counterpart Glauk Konjufca.
At a joint press conference following their meeting, Cakaj stressed that his visit comes at a time when the new government in Kosovo is formed and aims to give a new impetus to the relations between the two countries. He thanked Kosova for the help shown after the devastating earthquake of November 26, while emphasized the idea that cooperation between the two countries should be maximized, and conveyed his wish that the formal border between the countries should be abolished.
Konjufca on his part thanked Cakaj for the efforts made by Albania in stopping the Serbian campaign to withdraw the recognition of the state of Kosovo. Cakaj said that they agreed with Konjufca that the next meeting between the two governments will be held in coordination between the two Foreign Ministries.
During his visit to Pristina, Cakaj also met with President Hashim, the Parliament Speaker Vjosa Osmani and Prime Minister Albin Kurti.
This was Cakaj’s first visit to Kosovo after assuming the post of Foreign Minister.
