Kosovo’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Donica Jirvala, said her country aims to become a member of NATO’s Partnership for Peace program by 2023.
Jirvala briefed the Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora on his ministry’s work for 2022 and its goals for next year.
Noting that he is optimistic about Kosovo’s membership in the Partnership for Peace programme, a prerequisite for NATO membership in 2023, Jirvala said: “As for new recognitions, there is no new recognition on the table, but there is activity on this issue. I can’t explain the steps.” Here. Serbia has campaigned for non-recognition of Kosovo, but we have no information about the withdrawal of recognition. He said.
Noting that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Diaspora focuses its work on five EU member states that have not yet recognized Kosovo, Jirvala said that the main difficulty with Kosovo’s membership in international organizations is that these countries do not recognize Kosovo’s independence.
Jirvala said that the Council of Europe will soon put Kosovo’s application for membership on its agenda.
