The Embassy of Kosovo in Berlin

The Ambassador

Amb. Faruk Ajeti

Dr. Faruk Ajeti, born on July 26, 1983, in Gjilan, Republic of Kosovo, currently serves as the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary. He is married and a father to three children, balancing a demanding career with a fulfilling family life.

His academic background is as impressive as his professional journey. Dr Ajeti holds a PhD in Political Science from the University of Vienna, where his dissertation "Austrian Kosovo Policy 1986-1999" earned him summa cum laude honours. He completed his Master of Arts at the same institution after achieving his Bachelor's degree from the Department of Political Science at the University of Prishtina. His formative education was at the secondary school in Kamenica, Republic of Kosovo.

Professionally, Dr. Ajeti's career has had significant roles in both academia and diplomacy. Before his ambassadorship, he was a Counsellor at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Diaspora of the Republic of Kosovo in 2021. He was also a Research Fellow at the Austrian Institute for International Politics (OIIP) in Vienna and an Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Visiting Scholar Post-Doc at the Foreign Policy Institute, Johns Hopkins SAIS in Washington D.C.

His tenure as First Secretary at the Embassy of the Republic of Kosovo in Austria and as a Senior Media Officer at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kosovo showcases his diverse expertise and commitment to the representation of Kosovo's interests abroad.

Dr Ajeti is multilingual, fluent in Albanian, German, and English, and has basic knowledge of Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, which has undoubtedly served him well in his diplomatic endeavours.

His ambassadorship since December 2021 exemplifies a career dedicated to fostering international relations and a deep understanding of political dynamics on a global scale.



Germany was one of the first countries to officially recognize the Republic of Kosovo after the country declared its independence in February 2008, and also was one of the first to establish diplomatic relations with it. The government of Kosovo also remembers that Germany provided refuge to hundreds of thousands of refugees from Kosovo before and during the military conflicts of 1998/1999, and from 1999 onwards helped with reconstruction efforts.

Germany is considered to be one of Kosovo’s most important partners, offering the country long-term support in its efforts towards integration in Euro-Atlantic organizations. Regular visits to Priština by members of the Federal Government and the German Bundestag underlines the importance that Germany attaches to Kosovo’s development.
