US congressman and senior member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of this institution, Elliot Engel has praised Kosovo for preventing a terrorist attack by IS militants against Israeli national football team.
“I applaud Kosovo’s authorities for preventing a number of planned terrorist attacks by ISIS extremists, thus preventing a massacre against the Israeli football team”, said Engel in a press release.
“I remember the brutal attack against the Israeli Olympic team in Munich 1972 and I’m afraid that this attack could have been much worse”, Engel added.
“I am also grateful to authorities in Albania and Macedonia for collaborating with Kosovo in preventing this attack”, Engel said.
The US congressman said that Kosovo has an impressive history in fighting violent extremism.
“Nobody must have doubts in the commitment of leaders in Pristina in achieving this objective and the USA are lucky to have a partner such as Kosovo in this important effort”, Engel said. /balkaneu.com/
