Kosovo abandons bid to join Interpol this year
Haradinaj said membership of Interpol was an important “contribution to the fight against international crime and terrorism” and that Kosovo was “ready to assume its full responsibilities as an Interpol member”.
However, he added that while many countries had expressed support for Kosovo’s membership, it was “not in enough numbers for Kosovo to become a member.
“As Prime Minister, I have decided today to postpone Kosovo’s request for an Interpol vote at the next meeting of this organization,” he said.
He said he hoped to revive the issue at next year’s meeting, which is in Abu Dhabi. ■
