In the spring of 1999, NATO conducted attacks against Serbia for 78 days over the conflict in Kosovo.
Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright thinks that her greatest achievement in her term was “conducting the ethnic cleansing in Kosovo.”
“If you wish to know what I think is the most important thing I accomplished as U.S. secretary of state, I think it is conducting of the ethnic cleansing in Kosovo,” Albright said, answering to a student’s question at the Russian State Institute for Foreign Relations.
Ooops! After couple of reactions from the audience, Albright quickly corrected her statement stating her achievement was 'stopping' the ethnic cleansing in Kosovo.
“We wanted to solve the situation by diplomatic means and under UN patronage, we reviewed the issue with the Russian colleagues. Eventually, we turned to NATO, carried out a successful operation and the people in Kosovo are living freely now,” Albright was quoted as saying.
