Kosovo President Hashim Thaci awarded Prime Minister Boyko Borissov with the Order of Independence of Kosovo for his merits to the freedom and independence of the country. The high state award is awarded on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Kosovo's declaration of independence.
This order is a token of gratitude for your personal contribution and commitment in support of Kosovo, the merits of the Bulgarian people for the development of friendly relations between the two countries, and the forthcoming meeting in Sofia. We know that Bulgarians will welcome us everywhere and everywhere we will feel the Bulgarian spirit,” said President Thaci.
I accept it as a gesture for the Bulgarian people who suffered the war but always supported the struggle for freedom, independence, democracy, peace, and prosperity of the entire region, Prime Minister Boyko Borissov said.
