Kurti hails Kosovo’s participation in U.S.-led military exercise

Prime Minister of Kosovo Albin Kurti commented on Kosovo for the first time carrying out joint military exercises with the U.S. Army on its soil.

"For the first time ever, Kosova is hosting a US Army-led exercise in its territory. Our troops are showing dedication and professionalism in various exercises as part of Defender 21 in Kosova, Croatia, and Albania," Kurti tweeted.
 
Minister of Defence Armend Mehaj meanwhile wrote that Kosovo's path leads to NATO. "Kosovo and its forces strongly demonstrate close and permanent partnership with the USA and its forces and full readiness to contribute to peace, security, stability in the region and beyond," he said on social media.
 
Kosovo Security Force is taking part in the "Defender Europe 21" exercises, led by the U.S., involving 26 nations and around 28,000 multinational forces all focused on building operational readiness and interoperability between NATO allies and partners.
