Prishtina [Pristina], 5 July: During today's meeting, the government decided to allocate 50,000 euros for war veterans of the Kosova [Kosovo] Liberation Army [KLA; UCK in Albanian].
This decision follows the request of the Minister of Labour and Social Welfare Ibrahim Selmanaj.
Selmanaj had requested 25,000 euros but the government decided to double the amount.
After the meeting, government spokesperson Daut Dauti told the media that all ministries would contribute to the fund.
He also said that distribution would take place through associations of war veterans.
The government did not decide today about the allocation of 200,000 euros for the construction of houses for Roma in Mitrovice [Kosovska Mitrovica]. Dauti said that the decision has been postponed until sources for the fund have been found.
Dauti also reported that pilot projects for the creation of new municipalities will begin as soon as the documentation is completed.
"It will start soon. SRSG [Special Representative of the Secretary General] Soeren Jessen-Petersen must still sign a document and he is expected to do so in a few days," Dauti said.
