We attach importance to Kosovo building peaceful relations: Erdoğan

Highlighting that Türkiye has been the second country after the U.S. to have recognized Kosovo, President Erdoğan noted that an intensive work will be launched to reach the targeted number of countries that recognize Kosovo.

Congratulating Kosovo on the 15th anniversary of its independence, which will be marked on February 17, President Erdoğan said: “We continue our joint efforts to ensure that Kosovo reaches the position it deserves in the international arena. In this regard, we support Kosovo’s vision to join NATO, the Council of Europe and the European Union….”

Stressing that Türkiye is the country with the highest exports to Kosovo, President Erdoğan stated: “Our companies have nearly 400 million euros’ worth of investments in Kosovo. Our enterprises are ready to boost their contributions to our Kosovar brothers and sisters if the necessary means and opportunities are provided….We will continue to implement significant projects in collaboration to increase the prosperity of our Kosovar brothers and sisters.”
