The EU warned Kosovo on Tuesday that if it opened its embassy in Al-Quds (Jerusalem), the EU would sever its relations with Kosovo.
The Kosovo government on Monday announced the normalization of relations with the Zionist regime, saying that the two sides had signed an agreement to normalize their diplomatic relations. The ceremony was digital due to the Corona pandemic, he said.
The EU criticized the move, pointing to UN Resolution 478, according to which it calls on its member states not to open their embassy in Al-Quds (Jerusalem).
The Secretary General of the Arab League has also described Kosovo’s decision to open an embassy in Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as a violation of international law, based on the ban on opening an embassy in that city.
According to Al-Yaum Al-Saba website, Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Abul Gheit condemned Kosovo’s decision to open an embassy in Al-Quds (Jerusalem), saying that the UN Security Council resolutions in this regard are clear, including Resolution 478 of 1980, which condemns the Zionist regime for declaring Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as its capital and prohibits the opening of diplomatic branches there.
However, Ned Price, the spokesman for the new U.S. State Department, tweeted that he praised the relations between Kosovo and Israel, adding that the move would increase peace and stability in West Asia and the Balkans.
The Zionist regime, with the support of the U.S. government, has signed compromise agreements with a number of countries in recent months, including the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and most recently Morocco. The signing of compromise agreements with the Zionist regime has led to the emergence of widespread protests and rejections in the Islamic world.
