Kosova's president says grateful for Turkey's backing

Kosova's president has expressed hope that Turkey would continue to extend support to his country, saying that Turks living in Kosovo and Kosovars living in Turkey was "a golden bridge of cooperation and friendship" between the two countries.

"Turkey's support for Kosovo's independence and for our efforts to offer a better future for our citizens is a part of our history. And we hope that Turkey will continue to extend support for Kosovo's recognition by other international actors and our membership to the European Union and NATO," Fatmir Sejdiu told a joint press conference with his Turkish counterpart Abdullah Gul in Turkey's capital, Ankara.

Sejdiu said Kosovo was also grateful for Turkey's contributions to NATO's KFOR mission, adding that Kosovo attached great importance to Turkey as a country with a rapidly developing economy and increasing role in maintaining peace.
