The Minister of Defense, Ejup Maqedonci, said that the groups of the September 24 terrorist attack in Banjska used weapons produced in the state factories of the Republic of Serbia and that they were trained by military instructors.

This is what he said at the "Balkan Disinformation Summit", as he emphasized that they are working on the construction of a national training center for cyber security which will be inaugurated on March 26.

Maqedonci added that the Ministry of Defense and the Kosovo Security Forces have their own mechanisms to deal with disinformation.

Also, Maqedonci considers that the Russian invasion in Ukraine has in some way influenced the destabilization of the Western Balkan region, more precisely in the north of Kosovo. He added that there is evidence that the groups of the September 24 terrorist attack in Banjska of Zveçan used weapons produced in the state factories of the Republic of Serbia, and were trained by military instructors, and they suspect that during this period, since the Russian humanitarian center exists in Nis, they could be trained and prepared by this center.

Regarding the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue, Maqedonci said that the Serbian president, Aleksandar Vucic, is neglecting the conclusion of the process, since according to him, he is waiting for the outcome of the war in Ukraine in order to assess the situation which would be favorable for the state of Serbia.

Also, he said that there is a comprehensive transition plan that foresees the creation of the country's defense capacity which is being built since 2019, which will culminate in the third phase that will start from 2025 to 2028 where the Kosovo Security Forces will be supported with other necessary military elements.

In this summit, among other things, disinformation, the war in Ukraine, Artificial Intelligence (AI), the media and China's influence in the Middle East were discussed. /A. Shala/
