Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg is set to meet with his Kosovar counterpart Skender Hyseni next Friday. A spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs made the announcement to journalists, but would not disclose any details of the visit. Mr Skender Hyseni is also scheduled to meet other members of the cabinet as well as representatives of the lower house and the senate. It is the first official visit by a politician of the independent Republic of Kosovo to the Czech Republic. The Kosovar foreign minister was invited to Prague by Mr Schwarzenberg. The Czech Republic recognized Kosovo’s independence in May and one month ago opened an embassy in the capital Pristina.
