Kosovo Praises NATO for 1999 Military Intervention

Kosovo president Atifete Jahjaga said that 14 years after the conflict with Serbian forces, Kosovo “is proud and thankful to all NATO’s soldiers and commanders who contributed to the end of genocide against the people of the country”.

“Thanks to the engagement of all citizens, the determination of the society, our country is establishing a just society… a rule-of-law state with clear prospects of integration into the European Union and NATO, and eternal friendship with the United States,” Jahjaga said in a statement on Sunday.

NATO launched its bombing campaign on March 24, 1999 after attempts to secure a peaceful end to the conflict failed during internationally-mediated talks in Rambouillet in France.
