Norway’s Foreign Minister Børge Brende will visit Prishtina on 14 February 2017. During his visit he will meet President Hashim Thaci, Prime Minister Isa Mustafa, Foreign Minister Enver Hoxhaj and Commander of KFOR, Major-General Giovanni Fungo.
Norway has had a strong presence in the Western Balkans for many years, including in Kosovo. Norway has been committed to promoting stability, economic development, Euro-Atlantic integration, and consolidation of democracy in Kosovo. The visit of Foreign Minister Brende is another sign of this commitment.
Norway and Kosovo enjoy a close relationship, and cooperate in many areas. Norway is a strong supporter of efforts to reduce tensions and normalize relations between Kosovo and Serbia, and has provided substantial amounts of development assistance to Kosovo the last 15 years.
