"Osmani requested that KFOR take control of the north", the presidency of Kosovo refutes Rama
The Presidency of Kosovo has denied the statement of the Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, who said that his idea for KFOR to be located in the North was also a request of President Vjosa Osmani.
The spokesperson of the Presidency of Kosovo, Bekim Kupina, has said that President Osmani has clarified in every meeting with partners and allies that KFOR is the third responder in support of the Kosovo Police as the first responder in each part of its territory.
President Osmani has clarified in every conversation and meeting with partners and allies that KFOR's mandate is only as a third responder and in support of the Kosovo Police as a first responder and the key institution for the rule of law and security in each part of its territory. The institutions of Kosovo have asked for support from NATO, so that patrols in the border area include NATO soldiers, along with Kosovo policemen, in order to prevent the entry of terrorist groups and attacks from Serbia ", said the spokesperson of the presidency.
Also, Kupina said that it is not about taking over the powers of the institutions from KFOR-I, but about supporting the institutions of Kosovo in stopping the aggression from Serbia.
"The Kosovo Police has a full mandate in the entire territory of Kosovo, while with NATO, there is close cooperation and coordination, as evidenced by the reaction of the police operation during the terrorist attack in Banjska on September 24, 2023. So, it is not done words for taking over the sovereign powers of Kosovo's security institutions from KFOR, but for supporting Kosovo's institutions in stopping the aggression from Serbia ", he said.
Prime Minister Edi Rama in a post on the "X" platform today writes that the request for the deployment of KFOR in the north of Kosovo was also made by President Vjosa Osmani.
