Sanjo City is the Host Town for the Kosovo Olympic Team

April 26, 2021 - Chargé d'Affaires ad interim Mr. Arber Mehmeti, accompanied by the Assistant of the Embassy Mr. Kento Hara held an online meeting with representatives of the Sanjo City, Mr. Takuya NAKAMURA, Head of the Policy Development Section and Mr. Satoshi TAMURA, Senior Officer of the Policy Development Section. The purpose of this meeting was to coordinate preparations for the Tokyo2020 Olympic Games, and the role of the City of Sanjo as the "host town" for the Kosovo Olympic Team before the start of the Olympic Games. They also discussed the Memorandum of Understanding that the City of Sanjo is expected to sign with the Kosovo Olympic Committee. Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will be held from July 23 to August 8, 2021 in Tokyo, while our athletes are expected to be in Sanjo three or four days before the official opening ceremony of Tokyo2020.

The Embassy of the Republic of Kosovo in Japan for several years now has excellent cooperation with the city of Sanjo in Niigata Prefecture. Now being the Host Town of the Kosovo Olympic Team, we expect to continue cooperation with the City of Sanjo in other areas and sectors after the end of the Tokyo2020 Olympic Games.
