Admiral Burke agreed that a stable Kosovo is essential for stability in the region and for our own security and that for more than two decades, peace and stability in Kosovo have been a priority for NATO. He also assured his Serbian colleague that the UN mandate for KFOR's peacekeeping mission – which derives from the UN Security Council Resolution 1244 of 1999 – remains unchanged.
Security is a cooperative, team effort, the ability to work together toward a common vision: A safe and prosperous region
It was agreed that KFOR has established excellent dialogue with its Serbian interlocutors and that having direct channels of communication with Serbia’s Chief of Defence, General Milan Mojsilovic has proved very useful, for which Admiral Burke thanked his colleague. These channels have been really valuable and help ensure mutual understanding and deconfliction.
"Security is a cooperative, team effort, so we work closely with all security partners. Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision: A safe and prosperous region" - concluded Admiral Burke.
