CROATIAN President Zoran Milanovic today escorted the Croatian armed forces that will join the KFOR mission in Kosovo and said that they were “going to work in a (false) state that Croatia has recognized” and which is close to it, but not recognized by all.
– It is delicate, but I believe it is not dangerous. Some will welcome you there as best friends, others not at all – said Milanović in the barracks in Našice.
The Croatian mission consists of 130 soldiers, six of them women.
According to a statement from his cabinet, Milanovic told the members of the contingent that they are not beginners and that they should behave as they should and show what they know.
– Always think about it, regardless of NATO membership, that we are a Western democracy, a member of the European Union, part of an alliance of states that share many common values - that you are primarily the Croatian Army, and that this army must always maintain its integrity , uniqueness and awareness to serve the homeland above all. We will not allow ourselves to be one drop of wine in that big barrel of water, which will lose its identity, its self and awareness of what they serve – and serve the defense of the Croatian homeland – concluded Milanović.
The Croatian Armed Forces have been participating in the NATO KFOR mission in Kosovo and Metohija since July 2009.
The primary tasks of CAF members in the NATO KFOR mission are to prevent the resumption of hostilities, build a security environment, support international humanitarian efforts, ensure the implementation of agreements and support the development of the Kosovo Security Force.
