ATHENS – Culture and Sports Minister Lina Mendoni and her Kosovo counterpart Hajrulla Çeku expressed their intention to promote cultural cooperation as an area of rapprochement between the two sides during their meeting in Pristina on Thursday, in the context of Mendoni’s two-day official visit to Pristina and Prizren.
After the meeting, Mendoni stated: We had a constructive discussion on issues of cultural heritage and modern cultural creation. Our common intent is the start of a wider collaboration on culture issues. We are here to obtain a first picture of the cultural landscape via a short programme of visits to archaeological sites, museums and exhibitions, as well as meetings with cultural organisations. I invited my counterpart to visit Athens where we will be able, within a general framework of principles and actions, to promote a systematic cooperation”.
On his part, Hajrulla Çeku thanked Mendoni for accepting his invitation and stated that “this meeting is a first approach in order to lay the foundations for a cooperation in the sector of culture between the two sides through the development of common actions and collaborations”.
