The ministry told Beta that the Kosovo delegation had been presented as the delegation of the independent state of Kosovo, even though it was earlier announced that it would be referred to as “UNMIK-Kosovo”.

The ministry is to send a letter of protest to the organizers.

Ministers from the EU member-states, candidate states and Western Balkan countries were all invited to attend the two-day informal conference.

The Education Ministry will release an official statement later today.
