The paper reports on its front page that political parties in Kosovo, except for the Serbian List, are united in supporting the transformation of the Kosovo Security Force into the Kosovo Armed Forces. Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) MP, Ismet Beqiri, said on Wednesday that his party will support the three draft laws at the Assembly session.

"We also hope that consultations have been held with the partners that have helped us all this time, NATO and the United States of America. We hope that the transformation of the Kosovo Security Force will finally begin," he said. LDK leader Isa Mustafa welcomed on Wednesday the adoption of the draft laws for transforming the Kosovo Security Force (KSF) into the Armed Forces of Kosovo.

"The formation of the army, which began today with the parliamentary procedures, will be an important victory for Kosovo, but also for the United States of America, as they supported the process alongside supporting the development of the KSF into a modern force," Mustafa wrote in a Facebook post. He said the future Army of Kosovo deserves the support of all its citizens in order to become a part of NATO and an important stakeholder in preserving peace and stability.
