Kosovo PM Thaci visited Vatican without Invitation?

nunPRISTINA, Kosovo — Who is cheating? Kosovo Prime Minister Hashim Thaci – or the Vatikan? Or was it all a misunderstanding? Through a notification, the Government of Kosovo recently announced to have received an official invitation of the Vatican state to attend the beatification ceremony for the former Pope John Paul II. with a senior delegation. Both Kosovo PM Thaci and Foreign Affairs Minister Hoxhaj were said to have gone to Rome in order to visit the Vatikan and to meet several statesmen. …

On this regard now the Vatican has reacted with surprise to according news of Kosovo media. As it seems Kosovar officials were not aware, that for such events the Vatikan doesn’t send invitations. At least not within the geographical area of Rome at all – "not even to the most powerful states". The Editor of the Albanian language programme of Radio Vatikan, Dom David Gjugja, was quoted as saying, he can’t "believe that the Kosovo government could have made such a statement": As to David Gjugja, the procedure foresees in contrary that "… in such cases the representatives of governments announce their willingness to participate … There was no invitation to anyone".
