Commentary: An independent Kosova after two years

Kosova's independence — declared two years ago — is the realization of a nation's yearning and a triumph over brutal repression. We resisted through non-violent means for decades, including from 1989-1998 when I led a government-in-exile as Prime Minister. In only two years since declaring independence, Kosova has demonstrated resolute commitments to democratic processes, the rule of law, and inter-ethnic equality. Kosova's independence is a stabilizing factor for the Western Balkans, and will neither be compromised nor reversed.
