“Kosovo’s prime minister said Monday that the army the country expects to have soon will be a modest contributor to creating world peace.

Kosovo’s lawmakers will vote Friday on three laws that would transform the national security force into a regular army. The measures are expected to easily pass the 120-member parliament.

Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj said that the transformation would make Kosovo a provider, not only a beneficiary, of peace.

‘You cannot be safe and secure, you can’t help peace and stability of the world without being in peace yourself, having your own army,’ Haradinaj told The Associated Press.” (AP)
