Statement by the Council of Albanian Ambassadors on the establishment of Kosovo Armed Forces


The Council of Albanian Ambassadors ( CAA) considers the voting of 14 December 2018 by the Kosovo Assembly in support of establishing the Armed Forces of the Republic of Kosovo as a development in the appropriate time.

Kosovo should be capable of protecting its own territorial integrity and sovereignty from any foreign threat and it will not be a danger for any neighbouring country.

The transformation of Kosovo Security Force will also strengthen the Euro-Atlantic perspective for Kosovo and it will serve regional peace and stability.

The CC salutes the Kosovo goal desire to turn from a consumer into a contributor of security in the region and beyond.

In this context, CAA welcomes the initiative by the Government of Kosovo to draft laws and set up the necessary legal framework for the gradual transformation of the Kosovo Security Force into the Armed Forces of the Republic of Kosovo.
