Kosovo´s President Hashim Thaci, during the 93rd Rose-Roth Seminar of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly said that the establishment of Kosovo's Armed Forces is a major step to become a part of NATO and the EU. However, according to him, delays of the EU and NATO to integrate the Western Balkans create space for dangerous ideologies. “It is very important for the region, and for the EU itself, not to delay the integration of the Western Balkans,” President Hashim Thaçi said.

The Seminar was organized in cooperation with the Assembly of Kosovo and with the support of the Swiss Government.
