11. To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what humanitarian aid his Department is providing to Kosovo; and if he will make a statement. (233031)

The Department for International Development (DFID) is fully engaged in assisting the new country of Kosovo. DFID no longer provides direct humanitarian assistance to Kosovo as this is no longer required, apart from the provision given by the UNHCR to the small number of internally displaced persons remaining. UNHCR has been the sole provider of this support since the UN Administration in Kosovo closed its humanitarian section in 2001.

In 2007-08, DFID provided £3.2 million to Kosovo in development assistance, directed at helping establish effective governance in Kosovo.
