With our performance, we are showing that the KSF is leading towards integration into NATO and this is one of the contributions of Denmark which for us has a high importance and value because the KSF, everyday is showing to be fulfilling standards of overall countries which are members of NATO.
Training of Liaison Crisis Response Unit in Denmark is made possible due to the work and close cooperation with Danish monitoring militaries, Lt.Col Gjon Flarup, Major Eluf Pedersen and LtCol. Holger Fuglsang, who during their mandate are engaged in professionally stand up of the LCRU, during this ceremony for going to Denmark of this Unit were present LtCol. Holeger Fuglsang who has merits for this training by saying that: the purpose of this exercise is preparation of the Unit to respond in crisis situations in order to assist citizens of Kosovo in emergencies cases and other natural disasters etc.I believe that the Unit for Crisis Response of the KSF during its exercise in Denmark will gain a lot since they do have standards procedures like all the other NATO countries learns.
