PRISTINA – The Interpol Executive Committee has decided that the application of Kosovo for membership in Interpol would be put on the agenda of the General Assembly to be held in Beijing, China, from 26 to 29 September 2017, Government of Kosovo stated Monday.

“After an intensive and multi-month work of the Government of Kosovo, and in particular the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Republic of Kosovo is close to being admitted to INTERPOL,” reads the statement.

Government of Kosovo has been informed on the decision through a letter to the Minister of Internal Affairs Skender Hyseni by Interpol Secretary-General Jurgen Stock.

The Government stated that Kosovo’s membership in Interpol would advance Kosovo’s capacities to fight against all crimes, as well as strengthen the statehood and international subjectivity of the country.
