Retired US General Wesley Clark, NATO commander during the 1999 Kosovo War, has accused Russia of keeping the Balkans as a ‘crisis in waiting,’ raising an alarm over one humanitarian base entirely surrounded by NATO countries. Clark was in Kosovo this week along with other leading figures from the conflict, to mark the 20th anniversary of NATO troops occupying the Serbian province on behalf of the ethnic Albanian “Kosovo Liberation Army.” While he did not get a medal, like former US President Bill Clinton, or a statue like former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, the retired general was interviewed by the government TV station RTK about his vision for the region. Speaking with RTK’s Evliana Berani, Clark described NATO’s presence in Kosovo as an “important continuing commitment” that’s helping peace and stability in the Balkans – but warned that a threat from Russia was looming over the region.
