COM KFOR MEETS WITH IRELAND ARMED FORCES OFFICIALS


PRISTINA, Kosovo. KFOR Commander, Major General Guglielmo Luigi Miglietta, received today the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations of the Irish Defence Forces, Major General Kieran Brennan, at Camp "Film City” in Pristina.

Both Senior Officers discussed the overall security situation in Kosovo and the current KFOR operational activities in the region. During the meeting, held at KFOR Headquarters, they also discussed about the contribution of the Irish contingent to the KFOR mission of maintaining a safe and secure environment throughout Kosovo. General Miglietta remarked that the KFOR mission remains unchanged and any future change of force posture will be based on careful analysis of the conditions on the ground.

During the meeting, General Miglietta emphasized the professionalism and the commitment of Irish soldiers, as members of HQ Staff, in endeavouring to ensure KFOR mandate. The current Irish contingent is composed of twelve members (five Officers and seven NCOs) in various appointments within KFOR including Colonel Tony Cudmore as the HSG Commander.
