Australian actress Nicole Kidman, named in January by the UN "ambassador of goodwill," paid a two-day visit to Kosovo on Sunday to promote the women's cause, before establishing the final status of this country, AFP informs.
The actress, aged 38, met with representatives of several women's organizations and an association of victims of domestic violence in Djakovica, but also with the mothers of victims of the Kosovo conflict from 1998-1999.
"I am here as a goodwill ambassador to find out more about your problems, to be with you at this critical moment for the future of Kosovo and I am willing to be your voice if you need it."


The statement, taken over by the French press agency, was made during a reception organized in its honor in Pristina, the capital of the province with a majority Albanian population.
Nicole Kidman, who was already a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF since 1994, has been in the same position since January as part of the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), a UN agency created to promote gender equality worldwide.
The president of "The Good House" in Djakovica appreciated Kidman's visit as "a special event", which brought moral support to his organization at a very difficult time.
