Bechtel Enka, a consortium of Turkish and American construction companies, will build Kosovo's first highway, Kosovo's prime minister announced on Tuesday.

The 117-kilometer highway will link Kosovo with Albania in the south and Serbia in the east.

Kosovo's Prime Minister Hashim Thaci said Albanians living in Kosovo and Albania would get closer once the highway is finished.

The Bechtel-Enka consortium, a partnership of San Francisco-based Bechtel International and Istanbul-based Enka, is expected to complete the highway in five years.

Transportation Minister Fatmir Limaj said the highway would cost around 800 million Euros.
