U.S. Embassy Statement on the Formation of Institutions in Kosovo

U.S. Embassy Statement on the Formation of Institutions in Kosovo, September 11, 2017

The U.S. Embassy welcomes the constitution of the Assembly and the formation of the government, and congratulates Assembly Speaker Veseli, Prime Minister Haradinaj, and the newly appointed state officials and ministers.  We look forward to working with the new government to advance Kosovo’s progress for the benefit of all its citizens.

The United States continues to support Kosovo on its path towards Euro-Atlantic integration, strengthening the rule of law, improving economic development, and normalizing regional relations.

Citizens want state institutions that work for them, a government with clean hands, and leadership that takes decisive action to advance the interests and well-being of the Republic of Kosovo and all of its citizens.  We call on all of Kosovo’s leaders – in government and in the Assembly, including opposition parties – to honor the voters that elected them by taking these principles as a guide.
