Daily newspapers report that SRSG Søren Jessen-Petersen has sent a letter to the media and interested institutions announcing his support for the start of the internal security sector review. The beginning of the review is a recommendation of the advisory group from the British Government that prepared a report on the internal security sector and submitted it to UNMIK HQ and Kosovo institutions early this month.
Zëri reports that the SRSG has stated that the report will form the basis for the project to establish the internal security sector in Kosovo.
Koha Ditore quotes Jessen-Petersen as saying that the three aims of the security sector review are: it will be Kosovan-led, it will help develop security policies in Kosovo and will be a long-term development plan for this sector.
Jessen-Petersen is also quoted on the front page of Epoka e Re as saying, ‘The Secretariat for Security should start work as soon as possible.’
