NATO to remain in Kosovo despite crises elsewhere
BRUSSELS -- Despite numerous "challenges" in the Middle East and Ukraine, NATO is not planning to reduce the number of its troops in Kosovo
This is what a high-ranking NATO diplomat told Tanjug on Thursday.
The troops in Kosovo have a clear mandate from the UN Security Council, and both the Albanians and Serbs want them to stay, said the diplomat who wished to remain anonymous.
KFOR has proved itself successful, he believes, adding that he does not expect an initiative to review the KFOR mission at the upcoming summit in Wales.
The heads of state of 28 NATO members will meet in Newport, near Cardiff, from September 4 to 5, mostly to discuss the plan for withdrawal from Afghanistan, the situation in the Middle East and the Ukrainian crisis.
