Translated from Kosovo Minister of Foreign Affairs Begjhet Pacollli‘s Facebook page: “I just finished a very friendly meeting with my counterpart from the United Arab Emirates, the Foreign Minister and International Co-operation, His Majesty Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

I thanked him for the continued support they have done and are doing for Kosovo, not only in recognition, but also strongly supporting its membership in international organizations.

In view of this, we also discussed the synchronism of joint work for Kosovo’s membership in INTERPOL – the next summit will of the organization will be in Abu Dhabi.

I made the promise to increase personal commitment to issues related to strengthening the subjectivity and further international integration of Kosovo.

The opening of the Embassy of the Republic of Kosovo to the UAE was another topic of discussion in the bilateral political aspect and we agreed that the Kosovo Ministry of Foreign Affairs should start the opening procedures of the Kosovo Embassy in Abu Dhabi from next week.

Regarding the issues of intensifying economic cooperation between the two countries, I called on potential investors from the UAE to invest in Kosovo, which was welcomed and appreciated by the interlocutor.”
