U.S. Embassy Pristina Statement on Attack on RTK, August 23, 2016
The U.S. Embassy condemns last night’s grenade attack on the premises of Radio-Television Kosovo as another assault on Kosovo’s democracy and hard-won progress toward Euro-Atlantic integration. A small, faceless group has now added an attack on media freedom to its assault on democratic principles and Euro-Atlantic values. Kosovo is better than this. The American Embassy fully supports the efforts of Rule of Law institutions in Kosovo to investigate these crimes. We stand with the people of Kosovo in rejecting those who would rather use tactics of terrorists than those of a free, democratic people.
