President of Kosovo, Atifete Jahjaga has decided to refuse the invitation of the Trilateral Commission for a visit to Belgrade. According to the president’s office, the cancellation of Jahjaga’s visit to Belgrade has been made as a result of the political crisis in Kosovo.

“After carefully examining the invitation of the European Group of the Trilateral Commission for participation in the conference organized in Belgrade on November 1, the president of the republic of Kosovo has decided not to travel to Belgrade and not participate in the conference, as a result of the situation in the country and the failure to form the new institutions”, reads the president’s press statement.

“The stability of the state and the necessity to help the process of the consolidation of the institutions of the country have determined the decision of the president”, further reads the statement.

President Jahjaga has thanked the organizer of the conference of the European Group of the Trilateral Commission for the invitation for participation in one of the panels of this conference and considers this step as an effort to creating a climate of trust between West Balkan countries.

President Jahjaga says that in spite of her decision not to participate in the conference, the relaxation of relations between West Balkan countries opens a European perspective for everyone and helps in building trust among all countries. /ibna/
