25th April 2014: Zentrum Ost-/Südosteuropa in St.Pölten


Ambassador Brieger focussed his presentation around three main issues:

- Facts and figures about Kosovo

- Austro-Kosovan relations (starting from the role Austro-Hungary played in the creation of Albania, Austrian assistance in the difficult nineties through the then Foreign Minister Alois Mock and Vice-Chancelor Erhard Busek, the Status Talks with President Ahtisaari and Amb. Albert Rohan in Vienna until present day Austrian engagement and support in Kosovo)

- and finally Kosovo's progress on the path towards EU-integration.

His presentation was followed by an interesting Q&A session which allowed to cover some of the most relevant developments in more detail.
