Government officials and security experts hail a hugely symbolic moment for Kosovo after the Assembly approves a decision for KSF members to participate in international peacekeeping missions as part of the Iowa National Guard.
In an interview with Jeta ne Kosove, former NATO spokesperson Jamie Shea NATO reflects on the tensest moment of alliance air campaign against Serbia – when Russian forces suddenly showed up in Kosovo.
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.
