Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj said on Friday that if Serbia sent its military, the US would defend Kosovo, the FoNet news agency reported.
Haradinaj told the Insajderi website Serbia would not dare to send troops, but if it did, “the Americans will defend Kosovo.”
“One American soldier here would be enough. The United States would support us in such a situation,” he was quoted as saying.
Earlier this week, Serbia’s Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said she hoped Belgrade wouldn’t have to use its army ever, but added the option was on the table to protect Kosovo Serbs if needed following the announced transformation of the Kosovo Security Forces into a military.
