Kosovo will be invited to attend the Summit for Democracy organized by President Joe Biden, Voice of America (VOA) has learned from its sources in Washington, Gazeta Express reports.
According to VOA there is no official confirmation, and the US State Department has not answered their questions related to this issue. Politico.com has published last week a list of invited governments, but Kosovo was not in the list. The news prompted reactions in Kosovo with opposition and analysts interpreting the non-invitation as a sign that Washington has compared Kosovo with countries which have no consolidated democracies.
A group of NGOs from Kosovo in a letter urged the US to reconsider their decision and invite Kosovo to attend the Summit for Democracy, set to be held on 9 and 10 December. The Summit for Democracy will discuss three main issues: protection against authoritarianism, addressing of fight against corruption and advancing and respecting of human rights. /GazetaExpress/
