With a state ceremony, in the “Mother Teresa” square of the capital were commemorated the fallen NATO and KFOR soldiers in Kosovo.

Prime Minister Kurti in his speech said that in June 1999 we had fire on the sky and fire on the ground, but on June 12, NATO infantry joined the air intervention against Milosevic’s Yugoslavia to stop the genocide on the Albanian people.

“On June 12 we celebrate peace, liberation and freedom, and we remind ourselves this every day, because all those women and men who were sacrificed, gave their life, are in the foundations of our institutions, our state, our independence, which we want to move forward, with development, justice and democracy,” he said.
