Kosovo's public television (RTK) reports today that the head of biggest opposition party in Kosovo, Hashin Thaqi, will travel to
He will attend a meeting with deputy PM Shimon Peres, the speaker of the Israeli parliament (The Knesset) Reuven Rivlin and the opposition leader Benjamin Netanjayu. RTK also adds that Mr. Thaqi will meet the leaders of the Economic Chamber of Israel to encourage them to invest in Kosovo.
Not sure at this point what is the purpose of this invitation, but it appears unusual.
02/08-Update: Shimon Peres was quoted yesterday by Kosovapress as saying that Israel will indeed support the Independence of Kosovo. He also indicated that Israel will invest significantly in Kosovo by reiterating to Mr. Thaqi that Israel has some major investment plans for Kosovo. Mr. Peres reasoned the Israeli support for Kosovo by saying that “Kosovo and Israel are one of the most pro American nations in the world”.
