President Jahjaga condemns the attack on the US Ambassador, Tracey Ann Jacobson

President of the Republic of Kosovo, Mrs. Atifete Jahjaga, strongly condemns the attack upon the Ambassador of the United States of America, Tracey Ann Jacobson, today, during the protest of the Vetëvendosje movement held in Prishtina.

President Jahjaga emphasizes that diplomats accredited in Prishtina represent their respective countries and each attack upon them is an attack upon their respective countries.

President Jahjaga considers that the attack and deterrence of the Ambassador Jacobson is an unprecedented act, utterly unacceptable and in total contrariety with the principles and values of the Kosovar society and the state, which we are building with their help.

Attacks upon foreign diplomats and their deterrence is a harsh violation of the principle of democracy and law. This is an irresponsible and shameful behaviour.
