Kosovo among successful countries in repatriation of ISIS fighters

The U.S. Counter-terrorism Coordinator, Ambassador Nathan A. Sales, said on Thursday that Kosovo is among countries that have been successful in treating returning combatants from ISIS.

Sales told a press conference at the State Department on Thursday: “on foreign terrorist fighter repatriation and prosecution, we’ve seen some successes and we’d like to see more. Countries like Kazakhstan and Kosovo have been able to repatriate dozens – and in some cases hundreds – of fighters and their family members, prosecuting people for crimes and, as far as families and children are concerned, placing them in rehabilitation and reintegration programs and de-radicalization programs.”/Ibna
