Turkey's finance minister has pledged that his country would continue to support Kosovo in every field after the country marked a milestone with the end of the supervised independence on Monday.
"In this new era Turkey will continue to support Kosovo as it has done in the past," Mehmet Simsek told Tuesday an international conference in Pristina, Kosovo.
Simsek said the end of the international supervision will also allow Kosovo to use its current economic and political potential in the future, adding that Turkey would extend any support for the recognition of Kosovo by international organizations.
"Kosovo has the necessary young population it needs to make progress. Moreover, Kosovo needs to make structural reforms to increase productivity. And I see that Kosovar officials are moving ahead on this path," Simsek said.
