KFOR Commander, Major General Giovanni FUNGO, welcomed the representative
of the Swiss National Council, Hon. Hans-Peter PORTMANN, at KFOR HQ.
During the office call MG FUNGO expressed his gratitude and appreciation for the
Swiss contribution, centred on high value capabilities. COMKFOR and Hon. Hans-
Peter PORTMANN discussed about the overall situation in Kosovo and in the
Western Balkans region.
Furthermore, M.G. FUNGO praised Switzerland's support to Montenegro in fire
fighting operations in the last months. In the evening Mr. PORTMANN had also the
