Prishtina, 24 August 2009
In welcoming Ambassador Dell, Prime Minister Hashim Thaçi expressed his highest consideration for Mr. Dells engagement and for his contribution, over many years, in support of Kosovo and its people.
Prime Minister Thaçi also took the opportunity to thank the US for its unreserved support throughout all the processes which Kosovo has gone through.
Mr. Thaçi mentioned the prospects of especially close cooperation with Ambassador Dell, just as there had been when Mr. Dell previously led, with success, the American mission in Kosovo.
Mr. Christopher Dell said that he was very pleased to be back at the mission in Kosovo, promising close collaboration with the Government of the Republic of Kosovo, in further strengthening the historical relationship between Kosovo and the US.
Ambassador Dell confirmed the US's support for Kosovo, for the Government of the Republic of Kosovo's commitment to building a state of law, towards economic development and the country's integration into the Euro-Atlantic institutions.
