NATO`s base in Kucove- commitment to peace and stability in region

Kosovo`s Defence Minister Armend Mehaj said the modernization of the airfield in Kucove, Albania, into a NATO airbase is a strong indicator of the commitment of the United States and NATO allies towards peace and stability in the region and beyond.

"The clear Euro-Atlantic orientation of the nation and our countries towards NATO confirms the full trust built naturally between us and the irreplaceable ally, the United States of America," Mehaj wrote on social media. "Together with U.S. and NATO we are stronger against all those that threaten and endanger western values of freedom and democracy anywhere in the world," he concluded.
