Text of report in English by independent internet news agency KosovaLive

Prishtina [Pristina], 11 September: The representatives of the Kosova [Kosovo] institutions said today that even after five years of terrorist attacks in the United States, continues to promote peace and democracy in the whole world.

These comments came out today during a ceremony organized under the patronage of Kosova Prime Minister Agim Ceku in cooperation with the President's Office, Ministry of Culture, and the Prishtina Municipal Council.

Minister of Culture Astrit Haraqia said that this event shows once again the strong solidarity of Kosovars with the American people.

"Even today, America is proving to be promoter and protector of the world democracy," said Haraqia.

Haraqia said that Kosovar institutions have taken several initiatives to build an obelisk in honour of the 11 September victims.

On the other hand, Prishtina Mayor Ismet Beqiri evaluated that this event is even more painful having in mind that it has been addressed against a country which has done so much about Kosova and the accomplishment of the will of the Kosovar people.
