Against the backdrop of Kosovo’s formation of its first official army, a new brigade combat team from Hawaii arrives in Kosovo, marking 20 years of U.S. support since the end of the war to preserve security and peace in Kosovo.
If Kosovo’s government is incompetent and corrupt, one might also ask which international backers enabled such people to come to power and – in exchange for their unwavering deference – turned a blind eye to their capture of the state.
In response to the vote in the Kosovo Assembly on Friday morning approving the expansion of the Kosovo Security Force competences, Kosovo Serb politicians have stated they will challenge the decision.
Kosovo lawmakers voted in favor of changing the mandate of the KSF to that of a regular army, with Serb MPs absent from the session.
Clad in his military best, Kosovo’s president has broken his silence on the eve of tomorrow’s vote at the Kosovo Assembly, congratulating the KSF on the expansion of their mandate.
