5:05 pm
charter and of the resolution twelve forty four all they're doing right now is that they're actually. the stabilizing the situation they're actually bringing conflict . everything was reasonably peaceful until they gave the green light for our albanian special police forces to forcibly take the administrative border back in july and ever since then they've been giving them full support so they're encouraging actually the government from prishtina headed by hoshyar chief who is wanted for various charges from organ trafficking to drug trafficking and that they're encouraging him to more violence so they're not a piece of all there are total factor of war and the stabilization. and i say it a shot see isn't possible and he will be bringing you updates as and when they happen meanwhile you can also have charging me a video page to get the freshest pictures of this or that it's you could watch them
