Foreign Minister David Miliband who met with senior Government officials in Pristina on Wednesday commented on the event during his address to Parliament.

Miliband said that Queen Elizabeth’s welcoming is meant to fully engage Hamiti within the diplomatic community in London.

Kosovo declared its independence from Serbia on February 17. Until now it has been recognised by 52 states around the world.
