Kosovo declares day of mourning for late US president Bush Izvor: N1

The Kosovo government declared Wednesday a day of mourning for the late US President George H.W. Bush “as a sign of respect for his contributions to Kosovo’s liberty”.

The flag was flown at half mast on all state institutions.

The day of mourning included a minute’s silence in all schools before the start of classes as well as lectures on how the older George Bush told the world that the United States stood by the Albanians. High school students told N1 that they are grateful for the help President Bush gave Kosovo, primarily in the early 1990s.

Kosovo Albanians say that their strong pro-American feelings come from the crucial role the US administration played in solving the Kosovo crisis. They said that the elder Bush and all US presidents after him deserve respect for their support.

A main street in Pristina is named after George W. Bush and another is named after Bill Clinton.
