Kosovo Foreign Minister, Behgjet Pacolli, met on Wednesday the President of Liberia, George Weah. Pacolli’s visit to Monrovia came after Serbian authorities alleged that this African country has revoked Kosovo’s recognition. Pacolli’s visit and Weah’s promise to open embassy in Kosovo have finally ended the debate on Kosovo’s recognition.
Pacolli said that during the meeting with Liberian President George Weah they agreed to open an embassy in Pristina deepening further cooperation between the two countries. “President Weah clearly said that Liberia, as one of the first countries to recognise Kosovo after declaration of Independence in 2008, will strongly support membership of Kosovo into international organisations,” Pacolli wrote in Facebook.
Weah, former famous world football player expressed his readiness that the national team of Liberia to play a friendly match with Kosovo. “President Weah who is an old friend of mine, accepted with pleasure the invitation to visit the Republic of Kosovo.” Pacolli wrote.
Serbian authorities announced last week that Liberia has revoked recognition of Kosovo pending the results of the EU-facilitated dialogue between Pristina and Belgrade. But the Government of Liberia refuted Serbian officials and media reaffirming recognition of Kosovo. Foreign Minister Pacolli accused Serbia of spreading fake news, and started a tour in Africa to confirm that Liberia and other countries which Serbia claims are reconsidering Kosovo’s recognition stand strongly behind Kosovo’s independence.
