In his address, Ambassador Angeli stated that his doors are always open to the team and said:
“In this difficult time, Kosovo is our friend, our brother, he extended a helping hand. It is a very valuable help, moral and material, for us. As the Kosovo Search and Rescue Team, they worked in the field under very difficult conditions. They rescued two people, one of whom was a 1-year-old boy 3 years. I am thankful for them.”
