Dear Mr. President,

 

On behalf of the American people, I congratulate all of Kosovo’s citizens on the eleventh anniversary of your country’s independence.

Our strong, bilateral relationship is rooted in the shared vision of a stable, secure and prosperous Kosovo and Western Balkans region. As Kosovo begins its second decade as a sovereign, independent country, I encourage Kosovo’s citizens to focus on enshrining democratic principles, strengthening the rule of law, and expanding economic and commercial opportunities. Most importantly, Kosovo and Serbia must normalize relations, which is essential for Kosovo’s Western integration. We see mutual recognition as the foundation of normalized relations and the basis for any comprehensive solution.

The United States remains a partner to all who share these goals and are ready to undertake the hard work necessary for Kosovo’s success now and in the future


Sincerely,

Donald J.Trump
