“‘It’s great to see you all here today. Prime Minister, Ministers, Mr. Platt, General Rama, General Cuoci, members of the KSF, soldiers of KFOR, friends and distinguished colleagues. It’s great to be here this evening to celebrate the signing of this contract between the KSF and AM General.

The Humvee has a long, proud history in serving American and NATO forces. In service for some 30 years, it has become a ubiquitous symbol of American ground forces. And despite its age, technological advancements have seen it continue to be one of the finest tactical vehicles in the world. I’m so pleased that Kosovo Security Force has chosen the modern Humvee as its vehicle of the future.

But more than just the vehicle itself, this contract sends a clear signal to the world that Kosovo intends to follow through on its Euro-Atlantic integration, in ways both big and small. This purchase will strengthen the partnership between Kosovo and the United States, and help achieve interoperability between the U.S. military, NATO, and the Kosovo Security Force.'” (US Embassy in Kosovo)
