Even though it may seem that this text has an unusual title, still it is hard to capture with a few words what is connected to this date.
Sunday 17th February at 15:39hrs, Kosova became a country and the place is now called Republic of Kosova. Kosovar assembly members, with the absolute number of votes (109) have approved the Declaration of Independence, where Kosova was declared a Sovran and Independent country.
This day will be written with golden letters in the calendar of the newest country of the world. This day marks the end and the beginning of a new era.
This is the line between a Kosova with an undefined status and Independent Kosova is drawn. In this day a new life will start, now only for the citizens in this country but also for the whole region. Kosova will be a stability factor. The Kosova’s assembly decision is with no doubt, a historical one; with its statement it declared the will of all Albanians. It also contains the entire struggle throughout the history that has been done for the Independent Kosova. At the same time, in the Assembly of Republic of Kosova it has been said that all the citizens will be equal, that from the Independence nobody should be scared, but also forgiveness should be done, with the purpose that in the future all of us will live better than up till now. Now we don’t have much time to celebrate.
Starting from today February 18th, a battle to change a lot of things within the state will begin, but also to position and stabilize Kosova in the international map. The struggle will be in two directions – internal and external. Alongside the democratic development, inter ethnic tolerant reports and the material wealth fare, a hasty duty is the preserving of stability. Especially cause the new country can face itself with provoking and different barriers. There are still people in Balkans that want to see Kosova with tensions and unstable. But within a short time those people understand that they were wrong.
Kosova will look totally different and worthy of entering amongst stabile and perspective countries. As such it will be inside important international institutions. So all the struggle and our goals for the future melt in this very day of February 17th. In the day, which will always be a day of celebration?
Therefore in this case, a simple word id enough, Happy Independence. While I am writing this information to you the Republic of Kosova has been recognized by USA, England, France, Italy, Turkey, Albania and Afghanistan, while the recognition continues.
