Statement from U.S. Embassy Pristina

Statement from U.S. Embassy Pristina, April 15, 2019

As Kosovo commemorates the 20th anniversary of wartime atrocities, the U.S. Embassy extends sincere condolences to the families of victims.   Denying that atrocities occurred insults the memory of victims, further traumatizes families, and undermines progress in building a democratic, multi-ethnic state.  We also urge Kosovo’s leaders from all communities to refrain from incendiary rhetoric.  A commitment to the truth about the wartime past is vital for a peaceful future.
