A NATO committee visiting Kosovo on Thursday said the alliance needed to remain present in Kosovo, citing the recent upsurge of violence in the north.
NATO’s Military Committee, the primary source of military advice for NATO’s decision-making bodies, concluded a visit to Kosovo by saying that soldiers would remain in the country owing to the upsurge in tensions in the Serb-run north.
“Recent incidents of violence prove the need for NATO and partners to continue to provide a safe and secure environment in the region,” Admiral Giampaolo Di Paola said.
As of today, KFOR forces continue to be present at the two border crossings in the north.
Major General Erhard Buehler will hand over the command of KFOR to Major General Erhard Drews today.
