Ines Demiri, Kosovo’s Charge d’Affairs to Israel, announced the decision on Twitter, making Kosovo one of the few Muslim-majority countries to adopt the definition.
The Assembly of the Republic of Kosovo unanimously voted to adopt the Definition.
Campaign Against Antisemitism applauds the decision, which demonstrates Kosovo’s solidarity with the Jewish community at a time of rising antisemitism in Europe.
Britain was the first country in the world to adopt the Definition, something for which Campaign Against Antisemitism and Lord Pickles worked hard over many meetings with officials at Downing Street. Kosovo joins a growing list of national governments around the world to use the Definition.
