The Dominican authorities have also sent a letter to the President of the Republic of Kosovo, Atifete Jahjaga, in which the official decision to formally recognize Kosovo’s independence is confirmed.

“On behalf of the people of the Dominican Commonwealth, it is a special pleasure to inform you that Dominica recognizes Kosovo as an independent and sovereign state. We congratulate the commitment of Kosovo’s people to building an independent state on the basis of the principles of freedom and democracy”, the letter states.

The letter also notes that since its declaration of independence, Kosovo has demonstrated its commitment to cooperate with the international community, especially in the United Nations, to resolve conflicts with its neighbors.

“We are glad to inform you that we accept your request to establish diplomatic relations with Dominica”, the letter states, and it emphasizes that Dominica plans to open a representative mission in Kosovo, and welcomes Kosovo’s representative in Dominica.

As part of an intense lobbying campaign for recognition among the Caribbean states, the Kosovo Foreign Minister, Enver Hoxhaj, has visited Dominica twice in 2012 and has had regular contact and direct meetings with the leaders of this state.

Hoxhaj met the Prime Minister, and at the same time, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Finance of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit and other senior representatives.

After Minister Hoxha argued strongly in Kosovo’s favor, the authorities of this state promised concrete support for the consolidation of Kosovo’s international subjectivity.

Dominica (Commonwealth of Dominica) is an island state in the Caribbean, with a surface area of 750 kilometers square and a population of over 73 thousand residents.

Dominica’s capital is Roseau and it has been a UN member state since 1978.
