Retired US General Wesley Clark denied on Tuesday that he discussed security issues with Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti in Pristina.

Clark, commander of NATO forces during the 1999 air campaign against FR Yugoslavia, said that they discussed the energy industry. He is quoted as telling Klan Kosova TV that they discussed bringing in solar energy which needs to be developed as soon as possible.

He also denied being appointed special advisor to Kosovo Defense Minister Armend Mehaj. “I am not his advisor, just a friend. I can advise anyone but I don’t have any special mission,” he said after meeting Mehaj.

Clark is in Pristina on an unannounced visit.
