TEHRAN (IQNA) – A former Mufti of Pristina, Kosovo’s capital, said most of his country’s people are opposed to normalization of ties with Israel.


Speaking to Arabi21 website, Bahri Sejdiu said the majority of Kosovars reject any move to normalize relations with the occupying regime of Israel.

They are also against opening an embassy in Jerusalem al-Quds, the cleric added.

The people of Kosovo have suffered from Serbian occupation themselves and it is very difficult for them to put up with normalization of occupation of another country, he said.

On Friday, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Tel Aviv and Pristina had agreed to establish diplomatic ties and Kosovo, along with Serbia, will open its embassy in occupied Jerusalem al-Quds.

The remarks came shortly after US President Donald Trump made a similar announcement in Washington, where he met with leaders of Serbia and Kosovo as they agreed to normalize economic ties between them.

The decision came some three years after Washington, in a highly provocative move, recognized the city as Israel’s “capital.”
