NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg had a phone call today with Kosovo’s Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj related to Kosovo Army.

According to a NATO statement Stoltenberg informed Haradinaj that the North Atlantic Council had an initial discussion on the recently adopted laws on the transition of the Kosovo Security Force (KSF). “The Secretary General informed Haradinaj that, as the mandate of the KSF is evolving, the North Atlantic Council will re-examine NATO’s level of engagement with the KSF in the new year,” it is stated in the press release. NATO will continue its KFOR mission to ensure a safe and secure environment in Kosovo. KFOR operates under a UN mandate and will not be affected by the laws on the transition of KSF. The Secretary General will continue his engagement with all actors relevant for regional stability.

On 14 December the Parliament of Kosovo approved a package of laws enabling transition of the KSF into an army, Stoltenberg spoke over the phone with Haradinaj after the decision saying that “KSF’s transition into army is ill-timed and not in line with the councils of the NATO member countries.”
