Kosovo President Vjosa Osmani said it was time for Kosovo and Albania to reach an agreement on mutual protection in the event their security is threatened, Beta reported.

Osmani told a joint media conference with Albanian President Bajram Begaj that it was time for steps to be taken in this direction in order to protect safety, the Pristina media reported.

“Regarding out bilateral cooperation in the areas of security and defense, it is important that we have an agreement on mutual defense with Albania with which we will react in a reciprocal way in the event of an attack on our two countries,” Osmani said.

Osmani said it has been a few years since she first put forward this proposal which is in line with the international practice and is applied by many countries.
