Deputy COMKFOR, Brigadier General Christian Reiner, on behalf of COMKFOR, Major General Giovanni Fungo, greeted the Mayors expressing his gratitude for their cooperation. "You are like Commanders on the field,” he stated, recalling KFOR’s motto "Trust and Commitment" – trust in each other and be committed in ensuring together a safe and secure environment.

In his closing remarks, DCOM thanked JRD-C Commander for organising this important event and the mayors for their continuous support and enthusiasm for participating in constructive dialog. DCOM assured all the Mayors that KFOR will continue to support and assist them in leadership roles within their communities.
