The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Diaspora (MFA), Meliza Haradinaj-Stublla has called on all institutions of Kosovo to be represented in every forum with state symbols.
Through a post on her Facebook account, she said that there is a tendency to avoid the appearance of state symbols in various forums.
“Recently, there have been tendencies and insistences that in various forums, senior Kosovo officials have been asked to avoid appearing near state symbols, at the request of Serbia, in order to block Kosovo’s participation in regional and international organizations. Respect for the Constitution and applicable laws are not desirable! Even the Brussels Agreement on Regional Representation and Cooperation does not prohibit the use of symbols, on the contrary – therefore the name of Kosovo should be equal to all other names of the participating states and in case of using the symbols of other states, the organizers of the meetings are obliged to place the symbols of the Republic of Kosovo, in line and with the purpose of equal representation of the Republic of Kosovo. But this will not happen without asking us, or without respecting ourselves and the existence of our state,” Haradinaj-Stublla wrote.
