Statement from U.S. Embassy Pristina

Statement from U.S. Embassy Pristina, April 20, 2019

The United States commends Kosovo on the return of 110 of their citizens from Syria:  four of them alleged ISIS fighters and the rest women and children.  With this repatriation, Kosovo has set an important example for all members of the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS and the international community to follow.  We applaud their compassion in accepting the return of this large number of civilians.

The United States remains grateful to the Syrian Democratic Forces for their support in the repatriation and for continuing to humanely detain hundreds more ISIS fighters from dozens of countries.
