During his official visit to the United States, Kosovo’s PM Albin Kurti was presented with an award by the Iowa Senate.
In the award ceremony, Kurti was presented with the Renowned Service Medal of Iowa State, reports Kosova Press.
The medal was presented to Kurti by senator Zach Nunn.
At the age of 22, Albin Kurti led the resistance movement against the regime of Slobodan Milosevic.
When the Kosovo War began, Kurti was involved in achieving territorial integrity in collaboration with NATO, by resisting Serbia’s attacks as well as helping in the rescue of many Albanian families in Kosovo.
In February 2020, Albin Kurti was elected prime minister of Kosovo and continued his partnership with business, industry and agriculture leaders from Iowa.
