To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he expects the technical arrangement between NATO Kosovo Force and the EU rule of law civilian mission to be finalised; and what assessment he has made of the effects on military and civilian operations in Kosovo of the time taken to secure finalisation. (202385)

NATO and EU staffs have produced Technical Arrangement papers to facilitate coordination and support between the NATO Kosovo Force (KFOR) and the EU rule of law civilian mission (EULEX). It is envisaged that they will be signed into force by the Commander KFOR and the Head of EULEX once EULEX is ready to deploy.

There continues to be good co-operation between the two organisations on the ground in Kosovo.
