The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Diaspora of the Republic of Kosovo, Mrs Meliza Haradinaj-Stublla, met today with the Director of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), Office for Kosovo, Mrs Anna Rostocka.
Recalling the fact that Kosovo has a large diaspora in the world, as a result of the difficult situation under the former Yugoslavia and the war in the late 1990s, Chief Diplomat Haradinaj-Sublla has expressed the will to further deepen cooperation with international organizations, in this case with IOM.
“We appreciate the work of IOM in Kosovo and some of its projects in support of healthy migration”, said Minister Haradinaj-Stublla, adding that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Diaspora is engaging in various directions to attract investment and create opportunities for its citizens in Kosovo.
“We are building programs for Economic Diplomacy and we are in negotiating agreements for investments that will be an impetus for our young population to remain in Kosovo”, said the Minister.
Assisted voluntary return and reintegration was also discussed in this meeting, in which occasion, Minister Haradinaj-Stublla emphasized that this year there was not a large number of asylum seekers from Kosovo, and that the institutions are constantly working to inform citizens about the conditions of asylum.
