Serbian prime minister Aleksandar Vulin believes that the purpose of the new army will be to “fight Serbia”. And president Aleksandar Vucic complains that —according to information he claims to know— the official announcement for the creation of the army will be next 28 November, the date of the Albanian national day.
According to Balcani Caucaso, the transformation of the KSF —which currently has light weaponry and armoured vehicles— into an army is supported by the United States. Matthew Palmer, vice-assistant of the Secretary of State, said that Washington will support the transition process.
Kosovar prime minister Ramush Haradinaj says the army will contribute to improving security in the Balkans. The government of Kosovo sees the creation of the armed forces as one of the last steps in the culmination of the independence process of the republic, which was proclaimed in 2008.
