A Statue For President Bill Clinton

In Pristina, Kosovo, thousands of ethnic Albanians welcomed former US President Bill Clinton yesterday as he attended the unveiling of an 11-foot statue of himself.

The statue situated at a key boulevard bearing the president's name, is a tribute by ethnic Albanians for Clinton's leadership during the NATO bombings in Yugoslavia in 1999 that quelched the Serbian offensives against the ethnic Albanians. They look up to him as their hero.

Kosovo gained independence from Serbia last year.

Featured above is Bill Clinton and his statue and a Philippine stamp issue of November 12, 1994 featuring Bill Clinton with former Philippine President Fidel Ramos during his 1994 state visit to the Philippines.
