The Embassy of Kosovo in Berlin
Amb. Faruk Ajeti
Germany was one of the first countries to officially recognize the Republic of Kosovo after the country declared its independence in February 2008, and also was one of the first to establish diplomatic relations with it. The government of Kosovo also remembers that Germany provided refuge to hundreds of thousands of refugees from Kosovo before and during the military conflicts of 1998/1999, and from 1999 onwards helped with reconstruction efforts.
Germany is considered to be one of Kosovo’s most important partners, offering the country long-term support in its efforts towards integration in Euro-Atlantic organizations. Regular visits to Priština by members of the Federal Government and the German Bundestag underlines the importance that Germany attaches to Kosovo’s development.
