Kosovo voices strong support for Syria opposition

UNITED NATIONS - Kosovo's Foreign Minister Enver Hoxhaj voiced strong support on Monday for Syria's opposition, saying his government had already established diplomatic contacts with Syrians fighting to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Hoxhaj was responding to comments by Russian UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin, who warned the UN Security Council that Kosovo should not be allowed to become a training center for rebels.Speaking after a regular council meeting on Kosovo, a former province of Serbia, Hoxhaj made clear that Pristina was offering political support to the Syrian opposition, which is locked in a 14-month-old battle with forces loyal to Assad.
"We were among the first governments in Europe who was supporting the opposition in Libya and in other Arab countries last year, because we were fighting for the same aspirations, for the same values," he said.
