Serbian Defense Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic has reacted after recent statements by Kosovo President Vjosa Osmani.
The latter said in an interview that if the Serbian army attacks the Kosovo border it will face American soldiers.
Stefanovic stated that there is no border line between Kosovo and Serbia.
“Only one administrative line is with our southern province, which is very different.” he told the media.
“It is understandable that it is getting bigger, because the Serbian army is getting stronger day by day and will continue to get stronger. That is why I am sure that the representatives of the institutions in Pristina will respect UN Security Council Resolution 1244. “I am also 100 percent sure that they know why they are not allowed and can not enter the north of Kosovo by force.” said Stefanovic.
We recall that the President of Kosovo, Vjosa Osmani gave an interview to a Croatian media during which he stated that if the Serbian army tries to cross the border with Kosovo, they will face the soldiers of the United States of America.
The KSF commander was asked if he was afraid of armed conflicts now that the Serbian army is being armed, and Osmani replied that he did not know what Serbia had in mind but that if they tried to cross the border with Kosovo they would meet with the soldiers. of the United States of America.
“It is clear that the Serbian army sees Russia as its main ally in terms of military cooperation, but also the policy of that economy. They show it openly. While countries in the region, such as us or Croatia, conducted the “Defender Europe 21” exercise together with NATO and the United States, Serbia organized military exercises with Russia at the same time. It was the only country in the region that was not present at the US-led Defender Europe 21 exercise. Recently we can see how they organize military exercises with Russia and Belarus, which shows their orientation. I’m not sure what they have in mind when it comes to the rhetoric they use, but I know one thing very well: if they cross the border into Kosovo they will meet with soldiers from the United States and other NATO members. We are not alone and Serbia knows this well! “They tried to do it once in 1999. I don’t think they will want to try again.”
