Photo Story: Cheering Kosovo Capital Prishtina Welcomes US Vice-President Joe Biden

Cheering Kosovo crowds welcomed Thursday the US Vice-President Joe Biden.

The newly independent Republic of Kosovo awarded Biden its highest medal, the Golden Medal of Freedom.

Kosovo is the last stop of the Western Balkans tour of Biden, who visited Sarajevo and Belgrade first.

Joe Biden has been strong proponent of US intervention in the Western Balkans, and of the international recognition of Kosovo's independence.
