Kosovo President Hashim Thaci and Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj have congratulated Athens and Skopje over the name agreement.

“I congratulate our neighbours in Athens and Skopje on reaching a historic deal on the new name for the republic. Alexis Tsipras and Zoran Zaev and their citizens are to be congratulated. The renewed opportunity of NATO and EU integration helps also Kosovo and the entire Western Balkans,” twitted Thaci.

PM Haradinaj said the name issue resolution was great news.

“Congratulations to both Zoran Zaev and Alexis Tsipras for the vision and persistence. Hopeful that all other remaining open issues in the Balkans will be resolved with the same constructive approach,” tweeted Haradinaj.
