Kosova Sot reports that the international authorities in Kosovo have entered a stage of internal restructuring. Beginning with the change of the role of international representatives in Kosovo Ministries, this process will continue with changes in UNMIK structures.
The paper quotes UNMIK spokesperson, Neeraj Singh, denying that SRSG Jessen-Petersen was leaving Kosovo at the beginning of the next month. Furthermore, Singh recalled what the SRSG has often stressed recently that ‘he has a lot to do in Kosovo’.
The role of international representatives in Kosovo Ministries has changed from the role of monitoring to liaison or supporting role.
‘With the transfer of competencies to local authorities, the role of UNMIK continues to change,’ Singh said.
The article points out that Pillar 1 will undergo changes following the establishment of two new ministries. According to the paper, OSCE will have a greater role in the upcoming stages.
