Kurti: Spain should recognize Kosovo

Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti said in an interview with El Pais today that Spain should recognize the independence of Kosovo because the cases of Catalonia and the Basques are not the same as the Kosovo case.

“Spain should agree and recognize Kosovo. I know there are some complaints, but as our great writer Ismail Kadare said when he won The Princess of Asturias Award ‘Spain should never compare itself to Serbia because Serbia committed genocide in Kosovo’. I believe that precisely by recognizing Kosovo, Spain will prove that Catalonia and the Basques are different cases,” Kurti said.
