U.S. to Help Kosovo Join EU, NATO – Clinton

The United States will help Kosovo join the European Union and NATO, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said following talks with Kosovan Prime Minister Hashim Thaci in Washington.

“I believe strongly in Kosovo’s independence and territorial integrity and in its aspiration to become a full partner in the international community and a member of the European Union, and eventually, NATO,” Clinton said.

“The United States will continue to support Kosovo and work with the European Union to resolve the outstanding issues that exist between Kosovo and Serbia,” she added.

Thaci’s visit to the United States comes amid increased tensions between Pristina and Belagrade over Serbia’s intention to hold municipal elections in the breakaway region on May 6.

Clinton said she was “encouraged” with Kosovo’s progress in European integration and economic development.

“The prime minister told me Kosovo has grown five percent this year. That’s a very strong signal of the kind of progress that Kosovo is making, and we want to help fully integrate, particularly the young people of Kosovo, into Europe and the international community,” she said.

About 90 states, including the United States and most of the EU countries, have recognized Kosovo since it declared its independence from Serbia in 2008. Belgrade and Moscow have refused to recognize Kosovo’s sovereignty.

    Clinton said she was “encouraged” with Kosovo’s progress in European integration and economic development.
    Dd she speak about the Kosovo drug and human trafficking, trade in body parts and other unsavory facts about this “nation”?

    Mr Thaci, criminal and especially War criminal, excuse me Prime Minister of stillborn “Kosova Republic” a protectorate of the U.S. led Fourth Reich, (Franco-German EU Empire + U.S.= Fourth Reich) must be given legitimate status, otherwise monuments erected in Pristina to ex-U.S. President and a husband of Madam Clinton, W.J. Clinton, would represent inconvenient TRUTH of NATO’s cruelty and barbarism with trail of BLOOD leading directly to Berlin, Paris, Brussels and Washington!

    Kosovo can’t join UN due to Russia and China’s veto, Kosovo can’t join EU because Spain, Greece, Slovakia, Romania and Cyprus don’t recognize it, and it can’t join NATO because Kosovo is in itself a territorial dispute (states with territorial disputes not allowed in NATO), and plus if you consider it a state it has territorial disputes with northern Kosovo so no membership can apply except the OIC (Organization for Islamic Cooperation) – the only membership which Kosovo is suited for.

    Now Kosovo’s independence violated international law – the UN resolution 1244 so if more international laws are violated to get Kosovo in the UN, EU, or NATO whats gonna stop other nations like Serbia or Iran from violating other international laws, like the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty laws.
