Kosovo Foreign Affairs Minister Enver Hoxhaj will come to Slovakia for a short first-ever unofficial visit. He was invited to Bratislava by the Slovak Atlantic Commission (SAC) and its think-tank CEPI (European Central Policy Institute). Hoxhaj met on Monday with Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Miroslav Lajčák. The Slovak Republic has not officially recognised Kosovo as an independent state.

"This will be a private meeting, and it's absolutely all right. Minister [Lajčák] has privately met representatives of Kosovo many times," the ministry spokesman Boris Gandel told the SITA newswire. On Tuesday, December 4, Hoxhaj will deliver his presentation in Bratislava, after which he will answer questions from guests. He will also meet with a group of
MPs.

"Our goal is to initiate a qualified debate in Slovakia about Kosovo, because until now what we discussed was more or less based on emotions. We want to start a debate about what Kosovo is, what are its motivations, and where it is today in the Western Balkans," President and Chairman of the SAC Board Rastislav Káčer explained.
