    I'm thinking hypothetically, if all foreign agencies, soldiers, etc are out of Kosovo, will the numbers get worse a lot? Or is the diaspora that strong that can sustain feeding three airports, PRN, SKP and INI.

      you’re wrong my friend
      foreign agency have all other countries so its the same compered to other neighboring contry (prn have small number of foreign embassies compared to skp,bg,) but have eulex instead, about soldiers its a small nr and they make shifts every 6 months so all in all i think again diaspora its to big
