NATO is considering boosting its military presence in the Western Balkans, says Jens Stoltenberg

The NATO examines her strengthening its military presence in the Western Balkans in order to keep any tension in the region under control, the secretary general of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization said today Jens Stoltenberg.

“We are currently looking at whether we should have one permanent increase in order to ensure that (the current situation) does not get out of control and does not trigger a new violent conflict in Kosovo and the wider region,” Stoltenberg told reporters during his visit to Kosovo, as reported by APE-MPE.

Due to the recent conflicts that broke out in Kosovo, NATO deployed the operational reserve force KFOR to the region in September. The multinational force KFOR was formed in 1999 and has more than 4,500 soldiers from 27 countries.
