20 years after the beginning of Nato air attacks on Serbia, foreign Minister, Heiko Maas, the German participation in it continue to be for correctly.

“I continue to believe that the German participation has been a discharge, responsible conduct,” said the SPD politician of the “Stuttgarter Nachrichten” (Saturday). Military Intervention should, of course, be always a last resort. But: “We have seen that there has been massive violations of human rights, to mass murder. I am of the opinion that the Intervention of Nato was the right one. I don’t want to know what would happen all there, if it would have,” said Maas.

The on 24. March, begun in 1999, air strikes without a UN mandate, were a response to the brutal suppression of independence aspirations of the Albanians in Kosovo by Serbia. The attacks lasted for three months.
