Saudi Arabia to encourage other Muslim countries to recognise Kosovo – ambassador

Saudi Arabia’s newly-accredited ambassador in Pristina, Abdullah Abdulaziz Al-Abdulkarim, says that his country will engage other Muslim countries to recognise Kosovo as independent.
 
Al-Abdulkarim made the statement on December 22 2009, after presenting his credentials to Kosovo president Fatmir Sejdiu and meeting prime minister Hashim Thaci and foreign minister Skender Hyseni, local media reports said.
 
This is the third country to which Al-Abdulkarim is accredited. He is also Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to Albania and to Macedonia.
 
His country hoped that there would be further recognitions of Kosovo in future, and his government would do its utmost to encourage bilateral relations, Al-Abdulkarim said.
 
Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in February 2008, a move rejected as illegal by Belgrade, which has challenged it in the International Court of Justice. An opinion by the court, legally not binding, is expected to be issued in 2010.
 
Sixty-four UN member states, and all but five of the 27 European Union member states have recognised Kosovo as independent.

  • Sejdiu sends Pope a Christmas card asking for recognition of Kosovo
  • Serbians to make symbolic Schengen visa-free trip
  • ‘Malawi to recognise Kosovo’ – Pristina
  • Hearings on Kosovo at International Court of Justice nearing end
  • Bulgaria supports Kosovo independence in International Court of Justice

      lol, great outburst
      another bursted vein in a serb ethnic nationalist, if only all were as easy as you.

      =======================
      What exactly do you think you achieved? No burst (not bursted) veins at all. Just a calm observation of you.

      Ethan,
      Allow me to respectfully disagree with you on that point. I also may be wrong.

      I said this before, if one writes at least three, four posts in a row, it is very easy to see, what he/she is like, how far he/she went to school, what they are after, no matter how much would one try to mask it.

      In any case, the only thing that we could know for sure is - the arguments. And that is the only thing that counts.

      Read the full comment have to get rid of your proud Illiryan name to change it into Albanian. When and why did that switch occur? The truth is - Illiryans are ancient extinct people. They did not leave you a title on any land in the Balkans. If something like that were the case, you would be "liberating" Dalmatian coast too, since that was Illiryan land million years ago. How crazy you have to be to argue a point who came first in the year 500 AD? Why don't you go back when 3' tall your namesake, chimpanzee Lucy was walking in Lesotho, to find out if you have any of her genes? If you are able to establish that linkage, then you could claim ownership of a chain of copper mines over there.

      Ludvig Boltzmann,

      I do my best to understand the issues in the Balkans, due to the fact that I do see injustice perpetrated against Serbs in my name. Being an American I think it is important for people to seek the truth in things, I've educated myself as best as I can. You have helped clarify a few points on the subordination of American values in foreign policy to corporate/military gain. I touched upon it, but obviously not enough. You should know that I do feel no small amount of shame in regards to what has [...]

      Ethan, not a Serb:

      >>I suppose what I was trying to say is that once Albanians became an American protectorate in Kosovo, our honor was tied to your behavior, if you will. It was never the intent to cage Serbians in Kosovo like animals. People have a right to defend themselves from being caged like animals.If this is what you were going to do with our honor we should have left it to fate for you, honestly.<<
      - - - - - - - - - - - - -
      You [...]

      Read the full comment talking about American (Clinton Administration) honor and blame Albanians for "caging Serbians". Albanians did not install the barb wires around Serbian enclaves, did they? The caging was done by the US/NATO. The ethnic cleansing 2004, burning of Serbian medieval churches could not have been implemented without the NATO approval. Nothing in Kosovo could be done w/o the NATO approval. I do not see any American honor there. Shame for indirect complicity in criminal ethnic cleansing would be the right name for it.
      .
      .
      .
      When you speak the truth everybody could understand you. When the US, the undisputed superpower goes in unilaterally into any of those banana republics and immediately starts talking about "nation building" (code word for own "puppets"), then rest assured, NOBODY is going to profit from such an INTERNATIONAL VIGILANTISM. What made the America great is the American society, the envy of the World, where an African American a descendant from a Kenyan emigrant could hands down win election in say Iowa (95% white population) and become the President of the US. Only in America. America stands for human liberty. For the last 200 years people all over the world were flocking to America to enjoy unprecedented freedoms. The same America often does not treat other peoples the way she treats own citizens.
      .
      .
      .
      That said, it is not fair/just, in accordance with the Natural Laws for Albanians to be NATO (read: US) protectorate, or Serbian protectorate. It is not fair/just for NATO to take by force 15% of Serbian territory and to build the largest military base on it. We could play games all day long, American honor, Milosevic..., the bottom line is - a man is born to be free as a bird. Occupations, military bases, nation building and all that crap do not go with freedom. it is a subjugation, modern slavery..., which is never good for anybody.
      .
      .
      In that sense, whoever got the idea to build a monument for Klinton in Pristina was not thinking clearly. In my opinion, if they really want to thank someone for NATO Kosovo occupation, then they have to build a monument to Monica Lewinsky, not Bill. The Albanians cannot build their happiness on NATO military occupation. Without the NATO occupation, they cannot hold onto the loot. The only solution is convince the US that the gain of having the cost free military base is much smaller than the loss of famous "American honor", if you will and the outrage that it creates in all freedom loving people, Serbs especially.

      I do not like your shtick to present yourself as an American "mutt" (mostly Swede, German, black etc, when it is obvious that you know intrinsic details of the Balkans saga. there is no such a mutt in the US. There is no such a "mutt" in the US. So I go with the Albanians to state that you are, like me, an American Serb (Serbian American), which is fine, but it is distant secondary in discussing the issues. As for all your other points - they are brilliant, straight from head & heart. Carry on, please.

      Serbs have killed each other let alone their fellow "Kosovar citizens" haha i had to lought at their stupidity.
      Serbia commits crimes everyday and fabricates storys every day against normal Kosovars.

      If you want to debate, than debate piggy, but stay to the point and dont ruin Bulgarian websites with your gibarish posts and ethnic nationalism.

      Kosovo just like Serbia had the same autonomy in Yogoslavia as did all the rest of the republics. When the barbarian Scorpions and asslizard girls commited genocides in Kosovo none of you Servs did anything, and now you want something that was not, is not and never will be yours. Pathetic

      Why do you feel like you need to explain yourself to them? Let them think you are Serb or anyone else they want to think.

      They don't have good arguments to they have to dismiss your as biased. Even if you were a Serb, it doesn't make you wrong. Serbs are intelligent people. Why dismiss their contributions as not worthy or their writings as wrong?

I've seen the maps Albanians have for their greater Illyria though, anything you point a finger at the Serbs about will point right back at yourself. Americans just happen to be culturally way more similar to Serbians than they we are with Albanians.

The other thing I learned ... it is basically impossible for an American to understand European nationalism, [...]

      Första kristna folket i Europa, nämligen illyrerna kut ;)

      Illyria was one the first scenes of the evangelic activities of Paul the Apostle, in which the Christian message was preached. According to the Bible, Paul the Apostle "fully preached the gospel of Christ roundabout Illyricum", and in the flourishing cities of Dyrrachium and Appolonia, still in existence in present Albania. Octavius Augustus had studied at a military academy in Appolonia, before returning to Rome to become its Emperor, when his uncle, Julius Caesar was assassinated. Cicero called Appolonia a "beautiful and imposing city". William Shakespeare had [...]

      Read the full comment chosen Appolonia as an attractive scene of events in his famous play "The Twelfth Night".

      It was during this period of time, the worst persecution of Christians took place. The first martyrs of Christendom in Europe, Florin in 117 A.D. and Lorin in 138 A.D., both Illyrians, had been killed in Ulpiana (near present Prishtina). The Roman Emperor Galerius from Illyria, convinced of the futility of the persecutions on the Christians, issued the Edict of Toleration, which granted Christians the freedom of worship. To the newly instituted Christian Empire, Illyria contributed the men who instituted it. Constantine the Great converted to Christianity and put the symbol of Christ on his soldiers’ shields. He was a native of Naissus ( Kosova), which at that time was an Albanian town, just as it is now a Serbian one. Saint Jerome, the first translator of the Holy Scriptures into Latin, and the Father of Church of Christ, is noted in Butler’s book, Lives of Saints, as born in Illyria and speaking the Illyrian language. Pope Sylvester, and the Emperors of Byzantium, during the 6th century A.D., Justin and his nephew Justinian, were also of Illyrian descent.... Visa mer

      "By the way most of these "Serb" churches were Albanian roman catholic churches with a few Albanian orthodox ones. Serbs only know how to steal other peoples history and create myths to base their history on. Because they have no history."

      Serbian "Joe" or wahtever your name is. Your serb theories that kosovars came from albanian is so stupid. Albanians lived in these parts for thousands of years. its the serbs who invaded these parts - or should i say have been unwelcomed visitors, and its about time they left.
      Serbs committed the worst crimes against humanity since ww2 in kosovo and Yugoslavia, have you forgoten? Serbs cannot live peacefully with any other nation. FInd a neighbour of Serbia that likes the Serbs or is liked by them.
      They should back off and let people live in [...]

      Why should Albanians get everything and Serbs nothing? Kosovo was always Serbian territory and this is evident from the number of orthodox churches in Kosovo with some dating back as far as the 6th century. High efflux of Albanians from Albania as well as much higher birth rate among Albanians compared to the Serbs made Kosovo what it is today with Albanians forming a majority. Compared to Albania, Kosovo is richer and provides better opportunities. This possibly explains why 2 million Albanians live in Kosovo and 3 million in Albania. I personally condemn the actions of Milosevic and any ethnic [...]

      Read the full comment cleansing. However, Albanian guerilla fighters have constantly launched attacks on Serbian civilians in Kosovo for many decades. Why is this any different from Turkey and Kurds in Turkey. There are 30 million Kurds in the world and as many as 12 million live in Turkey. Why should Albanians with population of less then 2 million in Kosovo get a second country whereas Kurds don't even have one. Also if the world wants to give Albanians Kosovo, why give them the whole thing. Serbs form a majority in western regions of Kosovo. Why not divide it then? Why should 200000 Serbs listen to 2 million Albanians?
