Former Deputy Minister Gani Dreshaj has proposed former boxer Luan Krasniqi as Kosovo Ambassador to Germany.
Through a post on his Facebook account, Dreshaj said that “Luani is the man who has represented with dignity the Albanian culture and ability in Germany, as he has made millions of Germans proud of his deeds.”
But Dreshaj’s initiative, Luan Kransiqi has described as individual, making it clear that he does not intend this post.
Through a Facebook post, Krasniqi said that for 35 years now he proudly holds the epithet of sports ambassador, so he wished success to the new ambassador.
“I remain committed to building new bridges of friendship between Kosovo and Germany by helping and supporting initiatives and commitments for the good and well-being of the people, and I do not claim any function, task or designation like the one given.” , wrote Krasniqi, among others.
This is his full post:
My dear friends,
Today, in many portals and in some electronic media, a proposal was published for me to be appointed Ambassador of the Republic of Kosovo to Germany.
I would like to inform you that, for 35 years now, I proudly hold the epithet of sports ambassador donated by sports fans and I have proudly represented my country in the sport of boxing, with which I have experienced the pleasure of climbing the most pedestal up of sports career.
Therefore, despite the fact that I value and value the duty of ambassador as very important, especially of the ambassador in Kosovo friendly Germany and with high democratic values, the proposal given does not correspond to my interest and this should be considered as an individual initiative for which I was not at all aware of.
I remain committed to building new bridges of friendship between Kosovo and Germany by helping and supporting initiatives and commitments for the good and well-being of the people, and I do not claim any function, task or designation like the one given.
Leo, remains your athlete and good friend.
To the new Ambassador of Kosovo in Germany, to whom I now wish success, and to you, my friends, I wish you all good health!
