Wednesday, 11.10.2023 | International Co-operation
Admiral Stuart B. Munsch Commander of Allied Joint Force Command Naples, who is also Commander of United States Naval Forces Europe-Africa, paid a visit to the Republic of Serbia yesterday and today.
During separate meetings, Supreme Commander of the Serbian Armed Forces and President of the Republic Aleksandar Vučić, Minister of Defense Miloš Vučević and Chief of the Serbian Armed Forces General Staff General Milan Mojsilović had talks with the American admiral today.
General Mojsilović exchanged views and opinions with Admiral Munsch on the current security situation in the region and world and prospects of cooperation between the Serbian Armed Forces and JFC Naples, focusing on the situation in Kosovo and Metohija, owing to the fact that international forces in the Province are within the responsibility of this command.
It has been assessed in the conversation that the cooperation so far has been constructive and professional and that our partnership, maintained with full respect of the policy of military neutrality of the Republic of Serbia, contributes to peace and stability in the region. Also, readiness to continue cooperation in all the areas of common interest was expressed, primarily in those relating to developing capabilities for participation in multinational operations.
The Chief of the Serbian Armed Forces General Staff presented to the Commander of NATO’s Southern Flank the opinions and views of our side regarding the state of security in Kosovo and Metohija, as well as the challenges, risks and threats both the Serbs in the Province and the entire region face.
General Mojsilović has pointed out that under United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 and all the signed agreements, the Republic of Serbia continues to consider KFOR as the only legitimate security actor in the Province, and it therefore expects from JFC Naples to undertake steps that will make possible for a safe environment and freedom of movement for all, and, primarily, for the citizens of Serbian nationality.
