Actions of the United States during the Kosovo crisis, including bombing of the areas which were not sanctioned by the United Nations, were illegal, according to the international law, but fair, said on Thursday the former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
The bombing of Kosovo in 1999 was ordered by the then U.S. President Bill Clinton, in order to stop “brutality” of Serbian forces against Albanians in Kosovo.
Comparing that crisis with the current situation in Syria, Albright said for NPR that there is number of different legal ways for the U.S. to attack that West Asian country without the approval from UN Security Council.
“I believe there is number of ways for us to that. When you ask if that is legal – honestly, to go back to Kosovo, system kind of said that what we did there was not legal, but was fair. I have always believed that we are better in multilateral than unilateral actions. But, there are other ways to understand this and get out of the blind street of the Security Council,” concluded Albright.
