Kosovo’s Army will be among many issues that will be discussed at the UN Security Council.

This was made known at the daily agenda of the United Nations, and this report will be presented by Zahir Tanin, Special Representative of the Secretary General and Chief of the Mission of Provisional Administration of the United Nations in Kosovo.

The report also mentions the initiative of President Hashim Thaci to strengthen the mandate of the Kosovo Security Force, through legislative changes, and not through constitutional changes.

The latest report mentions the case of detention of the former Prime Minister of Kosovo, Ramush Haradinaj by French authorities, based on an arrest warrant which figured at INTERPOL, issued by Serbia.

The report also mentions the statement of former AAK  MP, Daut Haradinaj, as a reaction to the created situation with his brother in France.

“Haradinaj’s brother, Daut Haradinaj, who is also AAK’s representative at the Assembly of Kosovo, threatened with war and ethnic cleansing of Kosovo Serbs, if his brother would be extradited to Serbia,” notes the report further.

 “Creation of armed forces would require change of the Constitution of Kosovo, which would have to be adopted by two thirds of the majority at the Assembly and the equal majority of the reserved seats for the representatives of the ethnic minorities. Therefore, this initiative would require approval of the Kosovo Serb representatives, who strongly object creation of a Kosovo army,” notes this report.

The session will discuss the regular quarterly report of the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterras related to the work of UNMIK and situation in Kosovo during the period of 16 January and 15 April of this year.

This report is presented in accordance with the UN Security Council Resolution 1244 (1999), through which the Council decided to establish the Mission of the Provisional Administration of the United Nations in Kosovo.
