"Sleep well at night", Hovenier: NATO and American soldiers in Kosovo, capable of facing any threat

"Sleep well at night", Hovenier: NATO and American soldiers in Kosovo,

The Ambassador of the United States of America in Kosovo, Jeffrey Hovenier spoke about the threats that Kosovo receives from Serbia, mainly about the deployment of the Serbian army near the border with Kosovo

In an interview for T7, Hovenier said that he sleeps well knowing that NATO and hundreds of American soldiers are in Kosovo and can face any threat.

"We closely follow a series of things that could be a source of instability in the region. And of course, we have often spoken publicly when we were concerned about the specific military deployment around the border area. And this continues to be something that we follow closely."

"But I would also say that one of the ways we express how seriously we take this is our long-term commitment to the security of Kosovo, which is best expressed through the KFOR mission and the US participation in it.

We believe that NATO is the most successful military alliance in the history of mankind. That's a very, very strong statement, but I stand by it. And the fact that you have a NATO mission in Kosovo, with the responsibility to provide a calm and safe environment and to enable freedom of movement is an indicator, a very, very strong commitment of the international community and our commitment to the security of Kosovo ".

"The fact that you have several hundred American soldiers as part of this mission in leadership roles supporting this is another reflection of how seriously the United States takes this. So, I still sleep pretty comfortably at night knowing that NATO is there, knowing that there are American soldiers in NATO and knowing that they are capable of dealing with any security threats that may arise," the US ambassador said. .
