Kosovo's government donated half a million dollars to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, the province's prime minister said Tuesday.
The government allocated the €400,000 assistance to show solidarity with the families of the victims, said Prime Minister Bajram Kosumi. The money will be given to the American Red Cross.
"The government and the people will never forget the help that the American people gave to Kosovo," Kosumi said. "This is a small amount, but it's our great will and desire to help the American people in these difficult days," Kosumi added.
The United States played a leading role in the NATO bombing of Serb forces in 1999, aimed at stopping the crackdown of Serb troops on independence-seeking ethnic Albanians.
