The United States and the European Union have promptly congratulated the formation of Kosovo’s new government headed by Avdullah Hoti.
In a joint statement, EU High Representative Josep Borrell and Neighbourhood and Enlargement Commissioner Oliver Varhelyi congratulated the new government and Prime Minister and said the EU looked forward to a “swift resumption of the EU-facilitated Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue,” deeming the latter as “the only way to turn Kosovo’s European future into a reality for its citizens.”
EU Envoy for Kosovo-Serbia Dialogue Miroslav Lajcak also stated that he is “looking forward to closely working with [Avdullah Hoti] on the EU-facilitated Dialogue and towards a European perspective for the people of Kosovo.”
A press release from the office of US Special Envoy for the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue Richard Grenell also welcomed Kosovo’s new government and an eagerness to resume the dialogue. The US embassy in Pristina also tweeted its congratulations.
