Kosovo police’s seizure of drugs in Lipjan hailed by U.S

The embassies of the United States and Italy have commended Kosovo authorities for yesterday’s operation where they seized 400 kilograms of cocaine concealed in a shipment of meat from Brazil at a food warehouse in the town of Lipjan.

Calling the operation a big win for the rule of law, the U.S. Embassy said in a social media post: “Combatting organized crime and drug trafficking requires international determination and cooperation.  Kudos to Kosovo authorities for yesterday’s drug seizure in Lipjan–success through global partnerships between Kosovo, Albania, Italy, & the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration – DEA.”
