Kosovo

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 1 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment she has made of the security situation in (a) Serbia and (b) Kosovo prior to the completion of the UN-led talks on the final status of Kosovo. (93201)

Our assessment is that the security situation in Serbia prior to the completion of the UN-led talks on the final status of Kosovo is stable. Security in Kosovo is kept under constant review by NATO and the UN Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK). The situation in Kosovo remains generally calm but tense as the future status process moves forward. We condemn recent incidents such as the grenade attacks in Mitrovica and on Serb returnees in Klina. Where there have been such security incidents the Kosovo Police Service has responded, with UNMIK providing support where appropriate.
