Kosovo’s president is mulling ways to bypass a Serb veto on the formation of an army by proposing changes that would broaden the responsibilities of the existing Kosovo Security Force.
Kosovo’s President is planning to establish a regular army for the country by amending the current Law on the Kosovo Security Force, KSF, extending its powers and responsibilities.

A change to the competencies of the existing KSF would circumvent the need to win Kosovo Serb MPs’ approval for the formation of a regular army.

MPs from Srpska Lista, the Serbian party, which is loyal to Belgrade, are wholly against Kosovo having a regular army.
