Czech Contingent in KFOR proud of providing security in Kosovo for 20 years

On June 11, 2019 KFOR Commander, Major General Lorenzo D’Addario said at the ceremony marking the 20th anniversary of NATO troops’ deployment to Kosovo that KFOR has provided security and freedom of movement for all the people in Kosovo by working together with other international organisations and missions, as mandated by the UN SC resolution 1244.

At the same time, Admiral James Foggo, Commander of NATO’s Allied Joint Force Command in Naples, said KFOR is Alliance’s biggest operation in Europe. “It was June of 1999 when the United Nations Security Council resolution 1244 established the Kosovo Force as ‘international security presence authorized to create a safe and secure environment for all people in Kosovo.’ We can happily look back and see KFOR has done just that,” he said. 

The Czech Army has been operating in KFOR since the very beginning. Currently members of the Czech Army operate at the headquarters of the KFOR mission at the "Film City" base, where they responsibly perform their duties.
