Serbia's Army ready to respond to threats, says Army Chief of Staff Izvor: Ministarstvo odbrane

The Army of Serbia is prepared to respond to all challenges and threats, said Chief of Staff Milan Mojsilovic, stressing that citizens should not be concerned.

“We will be closely following the situation in Kosovo and Metohija (region),” Mojsilovic told Serbia's public broadcaster RTS.

Mojsilovic's statement came a day after Pristina authorities endorsed three laws on transforming the Kosovo Security Forces into an army, which raised the concern of NATO and UN officials.

“The Army of Serbia is ready to respond to all challenges and threats but I hope that KFOR will ensure the protection to all citizens in Kosovo and Metohija, within its mandate and capacities,” he said.

LT Colonel General Mojsilovic said President Aleksandar Vucic's visit to the army units in the Ground Security Zone was a chance “to get instructions and directives for further work.”
