"As Kosovo steps forward and embraces its own future, NATO will remain committed to doing its part to contribute to stability here," added Breedlove. "We will retain a flexible, deterrent presence and will make changes only when the security situation allows."
Later in the afternoon, General Breedlove met with the President of Kosovo and the Prime Minister. They expressed appreciation to General Breedlove for the significant contribution made by KFOR's soldiers in maintaining security and stability in Kosovo.
"KFOR continues to contribute towards maintaining a safe and secure environment in Kosovo and freedom of movement for all," said Breedlove.
