The Minister of Defense, Armend Mehaj, says that Serbia as a pro-Russian country operates with the idea that “the more territory it has, the more protected it will be”, therefore faced with this ideology of a neighboring country, he emphasizes that the integration of Kosovo is necessary.
He says that Kosovo is currently interested in joining the Partnership for Peace in a record time, for which it requires the support of the countries that haven’t recognized Kosovo as independent.
Minister Mehaj speaking for KosovaPress considers that it is important that Kosovo’s membership in world security organizations happens as soon as possible, taking into account the fragile security situation in the world as a result of Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine and Serbia’s pro-Russian policy .
According to him, in addition to the interministerial group for Partnership for Peace that has already been established, it is important that the European Union and NATO see the positive changes in Kosovo. He also emphasizes that they are increasing bilateral cooperation with many other NATO partners.
