Kosovo: Qatar recognizes Kosovo independence

FOCUS Information Agency - Pristina. Qatar has recognized Kosovo’s independence from Serbia, becoming the 73rd country to do so, Kosovan Deputy Foreign Minister Vlora Citaku says in a statement, cited by RIA Novosti.

The notice about Qatar’s official recognition was submitted in Kosovo’s diplomatic representation in New York, said Citaku.

The authorities in Qatar promised to recognize Kosovo’s independence in September 2010 when Kosovan Prime Minister Hashim Thaci arrived on a visit to Doha.
