Albania continues to destabilize the Balkans, sends Weapons to Kosovo
Friday, 21 April 2017
The Albanian Government under orders from its Prime Minister has started massive shipments of weapons to Serbian province and NATO protectorate Kosovo, reports Serbian daily Kurir. Serb security services have also noticed increasing number of islamists arriving to the province who have concentrated in the northern part of the territory.
According to the daily, all secret services in the Balkans have been briefed on the escalating situation.
- Official Tirana has been sending large shipments of weapons to Kosovo for at least six months. The border between Kosovo and Albania is essentially non existent, so these weapons entered Kosovo without any problems. The shipments are guerrilla-type weapons, normally used for terrorism: AK47s, RPGs, anti-tank mines, long range snipers from German production, night vision goggles, sophisticated communication equipment etc" says the military official for Kurir.
Albania's Prime Minister Edi Rama and Kosovo's Hasim Thaci have publicly stated of the intent for two territories to unite should Brussels makes the path of joining the EU difficult. There has been no comment from Brussels or NATO who maintain large presence in Kosovo.
Former head of Serbian intelligence (VBA) Momir Stojanovic claims he is convinced that there is a dangerous scenario at play to destabilize the Balkans.
