asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will work with the Government of Kosovo, the NATO Kosovo Force, the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo and the relevant European Union institutions and officials to ensure the safety of all Kosovans, both north and south of the Ibar river. [HL2177]

The UK is committed to working with Kosovo's Government, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO)-led Kosovo Force (KFOR), the UN and EU to ensure the safety of all Kosovo's people.

The UK contributes around 175 troops to KFOR, a ready battalion to NATO's pan-Balkans reserve force and a two-star general, working to reform the Kosovo Protection Corps. In addition, around 60 UK police officers are working with the UN Mission in Kosovo. The UK intends to contribute a similar number to the EU's police and Rule of Law Mission to Kosovo.
