Foggo meets with Mr. Rrustem Berisha, Lieutenant General Rrahman Rama

U.S. Navy Admiral James Foggo met with Mr. Rrustem Berisha and Lieutenant General Rrahman Rama today. The leaders discussed the current state of security in Kosovo, in the context of KFOR’s mission to provide a safe and secure environment plus freedom of movement for all people in Kosovo, under UN Security Council Resolution 1244.

During the visit, Foggo discussed the issue of Kosovo’s plan to transition the Kosovo Security Force.

Foggo reiterated his expectation that the transition of the KSF be a progressive, transparent and inclusive effort and closely coordinated with NATO and the international community.

Foggo commands NATO’s Allied Joint Force Command Naples, which oversees KFOR.

NATO remains committed through KFOR to a safe and secure environment in Kosovo and to the stability in the wider Western Balkans.
