Zeman: Kosovo army would be an armed KLA

Belgrade – Forming Kosovo armed forces would represent a repeated arming of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), which is responsible for acts of terrorism, says Czech President Miloš Zeman.

“Since KLA committed a series of terrorist acts during the war in Yugoslavia, I would be afraid of an independent Kosovo army, which would be nothing else but an armed KLA,” Zeman told Czech reporters following him on his visits in Serbia and Slovenia.

He recalled that Kosovo had not been recognised by numerous countries, calling it, to put it mildly, “a very strange country,” Belgrade media reports.

“It’s a country with a strong influence of drug mafias,” Zeman stated at the end of his visit in Serbia.

Czech President Miloš Zeman is ending his two-day visit in Serbia on Wednesday and will then travel to Slovenia.(TSN)
