The Presidential Military Medal is awarded to these soldiers, who are not only peacekeepers but also loyal nurturers of the excellent friendly relations between Kosovo and Slovenia,” pointed out President Osmani.

According to her, each and every one of the 9,417 Slovenian peacekeepers who have served over two decades in Kosovo has a special contribution to peace and stability, so they will be forever remembered by the people of Kosovo, to whom we remain forever grateful.

At the ceremony, President Osmani emphasized that the Kosovo issue received strong support over the years from Slovenia and she asked for this support to continue also during the process of Kosovo's membership in NATO.

“I have every confidence that our army can benefit greatly from the experience of your army. I wish that, in addition to cooperation in the military field, in the near future I see our forces alongside your forces in NATO. This alliance is our goal and strategic interest,” stated President Osmani emphasized at the awarding ceremony of the Slovenian peacekeepers.
