Palestinians still fuming following President Trump’s brokered Israeli-UAE peace announcement. Now, cementing the irrelevance of their anti-Israel/anti-America influence, President Trump has Kosovo joining Serbia in their recognition of Israel as well.
– Israeli PM Netanyahu, “Their recognition of Israel is expanding and more countries are expected to join it.”
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Friday that Kosovo will become the world’s first Muslim-majority nation to open its Israel embassy in Jerusalem.
The announcement came shortly after US President Donald Trump unveiled a historic accord on economic ties between Kosovo and Serbia, which also included Kosovo recognizing Israel and Serbia relocating its embassy to Jerusalem.
Another great day for peace with Middle East – Muslim-majority Kosovo and Israel have agreed to normalize ties and establish diplomatic relations. Well-done! More Islamic and Arab nations will follow soon!

During his meeting with Kosovo’s Prime Minister Abdullah Hoti, Trump called Netanyahu to congratulate the two leaders on the decision to establish formal diplomatic ties, the Prime Minister’s office said.
At the meeting, Hoti also announced that the country’s diplomatic mission to Israel will be based in Jerusalem.
“As I said in recent days, the circle of peace and recognition of Israel is expanding and more countries are expected to join it,” Netanyahu said.
Kosovo’s parliament voted for its independence in 2008. It was recognized by some 114 states across the world, but Israel was not on that list as the nation did not recognize the Jewish state.
I welcome the announcement of Israeli PM @netanyahu about the genuine intention to recognize #Kosovo and establish diplomatic relations. Kosovo will keep its promise to place its diplomatic mission in #Jerusalem 🇽🇰🇮🇱🇺🇸
