Kosovo: Peacekeeping Force

Volume 684: debated on Tuesday 25 July 2006

asked Her Majesty’s Government:

What plans there are to increase the Kosovo peacekeeping force presence in Kosovo to boost security during the final status talks process. [HL7071]

Although the security environment in Kosovo is stable, NATO has deployed a battalion from its operational reserve as a demonstration of its commitment to Kosovo. The deployment confirms NATO's ability to reinforce in-theatre NATO-led forces at very short notice and continues NATO's mission to provide a safe and secure environment for all of Kosovo. It is not assumed that the NATO force in Kosovo, KFOR, will see an increase in troop numbers during the status process.
