When will it be known if Kosovo is to have a defence force after status resolution?

September has been mentioned as the month when the Steering Committee of the ISSR (Internal Sector Security Review) should decide on how security structures in Kosovo should be organized once status is resolved, Zëri writes in its lead story.

Quoting it sources, the paper says that the Secretariat of the ISSR which was supposed to come out with recommendations did not manage to complete its work due to the lack of funds.

Even though, according to Zëri, these financial issues are expected to be solved very soon, there is another issue that needs to be addressed, namely the “defence forces of Kosovo after its status is resolved.” It is by now known that Kosovo will have its Ministries of Order and Justice [as well as] intelligence service but “it is not yet known if Kosovo is to have its own army, which along with a new NATO mission would protect Kosovo.” The role of KPC in the period following status definition is not clear either, says the paper.

The paper goes on to quote Western diplomatic sources as saying that most of Contact Group governments are in favour of Kosovo having a defence force that would [support] NATO troops. Supporters of this idea prefer KPC to take on this role, Zëri writes.

In another article, the paper talks about the terms of reference for ISSR Steering Committee, setting out the duties and responsibilities of this body. They primarily have to do with creating an effective and responsible security sector in Kosovo.

to yo all
this is the most important thing for Kosova to have it's defence forces to be guard of the all inhabitans living there, this is one of the most important body to be instal and have all capability to be responsible and accountable for the people of kosovo, for the GOV OF KOSOVA, as one of the facultaive apparats in the Gov towrds complition.
transfering power form KFOR as organ impose to the Kosova difense is necessarly and ineviably vital for future of stability.

After the attacks in Spain and London, England I highly doubt the EU will allow any muslims to police any borders in Europe.

I don't know that is entirely up to them (EU) though to decide for 3 million people in Kosova.
On the other hand defining albanians in kosova as "muslims" who couln't be trusted to guard the borders of their own country is a bit of a stretch.
Albanians in Albania have been guarding their borders since 1912 and 70% of them are muslims.
Nevertheless investigations to London bombings somehow brought up Serbia in the headlines...

albanians in albania do whatever the US tells them to do otherwise, they would starve.

U mean they would own other countries hundreeds of billions of dollars like Serbia?

there aren't 3 million people in Kosovo no matter how often you repeat it. why must you lie? lies will not further your cause of independence. truthfulness and tolerance will. but we know that is as scarce as hens teeth in the kosovar albanian community.

A Kosovar Army would certainly better provide for peace and security than the Serb Army if we use history as a guide. After all, is the most killing in Europe since WWII was not done by Albanians or Croats or Bosnians, but by Serbs. Also unlike the Serb Army, at least the Kosovar Army could be trusted to stay in their own borders and not invade their neighbors trying to create the mythical Greater Serbia!

Anonymous said...

The blogger who wrote that there are 3 million people in Kosova must have made a typing error.

Don't draw conclusions so quickly, we are only human and people make mistakes. Next year the census will be carried out, and we shall find out, finally, how many people actually live in Kosova. Current estimates are 1.8-2.4 million people, Albanian and Serb, Black and White, Turkish and Roma, Catholic and Muslim -- all of them together heading towards a peaceful and prosperous future.

of course the population of an independent kosova without foreign powers polciing it would drop by 10% as the remaining Serbs and Roma are ethnically cleansed ....

Anonymous said...

as an albanian, i would much prefer Kosova not have a defence force........

i understand the pride point, but we are now in an era where there are other options......

all we need is a good police force and some special forces.....

the security of the country should be given to NATO, and NATO only and this would be a godsend.

at a time when Kosova much needs economic development, we don't need to go off spending hundreds of millions on defence, when, other countries like the U.S.A would well accept the responsibility....

two countries which were decimated by world war II, and consequently were restricted from having / developing defence forces, went on to be two of the biggest economic powerhouses on this planet........being Germany and Japan.

It also goes to the U.S interests to have a big base and presence, and overall, it would be great mutual agreement, and the Kosovar people would also love this.

Anonymous said...

Although I agree with the above bloger, the fact remains we're on the border with Serbia and we need to have a defense sooner or later. The country north of Kosova cannot be trusted and we must be capable of defending the inhabitants of Kosova.

Anonymous said...

above blogger:....thats why you have NATO securing the area.....

either way, Kosova's independence is not the final nail in the coffin for Serbia.......there is more to come and I wouldn't be surprised if it has more problems in Eastern Kosova (presevo valley), Vojvodina, etc........

Kosovo Serb policeman wounded in ambush
10 Sep 2005 10:44:31 GMT
Source: Reuters
CRISIS PROFILE: Can Kosovo put violence behind it?


PRISTINA, Serbia and Montenegro, Sept 10 (Reuters) - A Kosovo Serb policeman was wounded when his vehicle was ambushed and fired on late on Friday, U.N. police said, in a region where two Serb men were shot dead two weeks ago.
The attack took place shortly before midnight on the main road near the Serb region of Strpce in southern Kosovo, Serbia's mainly ethnic Albanian province now run by the United Nations.
"The incident occurred when the officer's vehicle...was ambushed and fired upon by unknown armed suspects," U.N. police said in a statement.
The brother of the wounded officer told Reuters he had been hit in the back and leg and was taken to the nearby Bondsteel U.S. military base. His injuries were not life-threatening.
A police source said two other Serb policemen were in the car but escaped unhurt.
The attack happened near a memorial to ethnic Albanian guerrillas killed in the 1998-99 war with Serb forces.
The memorial was damaged in an explosion on Thursday but U.N. police commissioner Kai Vittrup said it was not clear if the incidents were related and that police were "reinforcing security measures" in the area.
Legally part of Serbia, Kosovo has been run by the United Nations since 1999 when NATO bombing drove out Serb forces accused of brutal atrocities in a war on separatist rebels.
Thousands of Serbs fled after the conflict and those that stayed became frequent targets.
Friday's attack took place several kilometres from the site of a drive-by shooting on Aug. 28 in which two Serb men were killed, shattering a year-long lull in attacks involving Serbs.
U.N. police have refused to speculate on possible motives but Serb leaders in Belgrade blame ethnic Albanian extremists pushing for independence from Serbia in negotiations expected to begin this year.
A U.N. envoy is within weeks of submitting a report to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan on whether Kosovo's ethnic Albanian leadership has made enough progress on democracy and minority rights for those talks to begin, possibly next month.
Belgrade says the 100,000 Serbs living in Kosovo, where ethnic Albanians make up 90 percent of the population, are under threat and wants the talks delayed.

kosovar albanians will never have an "army". they can't be trusted. that is why there are 15,000 foreign troops in the region who's commanders are holding talks with the Serbian Montenegro military leadership. Get it through your thick skulls: you can't be trusted.

"one of the oldest people in the world" hahahahahahah only a stupid insecure sheep fucker could say something as moronic as that, as if ALL the people of the world are not desending from "the oldest people in the world". dude show ME SHOW ONE THREAD OF EVIDENCE THAT SHOWS EVEN AN A IN ALBANIA FROM THE ILLIRIAN CULTURE (and dont give me the albanoi tribe bullshit caue if u are basing ur argument on that i can point the baku and azeri albania where u really came from). show ur "albanian and illirian connection" culture, art, monuments etc etc etc that were from the illirian times, show me when was the first time that the word ALBANIAN WAS USED - IT WAS IN THE 12th CENTURY!!! not 4, 10 or 20 thousand years ago. it is a know fact that all of the people of the balkans share common ansestors, now that fact that the albos have no culture and nothing of their own to be proud of is another issue. SHOW ME ONE, JUST ONE ALBANIAN SOURCE PRIOR TO THE 19TH CENTURY THAT CLAIMS U ARE THE ILLIRIANS??????!?!?!?!?! HAHAHAHAHAH U WILL NEVER FIND ONE!! NEVER!!! u guys started to lay cliam to that thoery in the 19th cent. after u saw the croats and serbs doing so as well. be original for once. and for ur info there are many muslim serbs in sandjak and bosnia and catholic serbs in dalmatia, and guess waht they were traitors just like u guys were to ur christian faith. check this out idiota:

Continuity in Balkans
Despite the multiethnic nature of the Balkans, it seems that most inhabitants of the peninsula share common ancestors. Scientists feel that we will have a better picture of these ethnic trajectories within the next several years. The genetic marker M170 appears to have come from the Middle East to the Balkan region roughly 20,000 years ago. It seems today that this marker is unique to the Balkans area, though research suggests that about 80% of European genetic stock goes back to Paleolithic period.

To the idiot blogger above, just last week an 8 thousand years old tribe was unearthed from the region of th Enkelei tribe. The day before that a 10 thousand year old graveyard was found in the region of Korce. Meanwhile the Serbs have been in the Balkans for a maximum of 1 300 years.

That was an 8 thousand years old city.

Contribution to humanity:

Serbs have played a prominent role in the development of the arts and sciences. Prominent individuals have included the scientists Nikola Tesla, Mihajlo Pupin, Jovan Cvijic, Milutin Milanković and Mileva Maric (mathematician and Albert Einstein's first wife); the famous composer Josip Runjanin; Rudjer Boscovich's father was Serb. In the United States, two Serbs are NBA stars: Vlade Divac and Peja Stojaković and actress Mila Jovović's father is Serbian.
The mother of the last (Eastern) Roman Emperor Constantine XI Paleologos Dragases was Serbian princess Helene Dragas, and he liked to be known by her Serbian surname of Dragas.
According to the National Enquirer, author Ian Fleming patterned James Bond after Dusko Popov, a Serbian double agent nicknamed Tricycle.
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky composed Slavonic March (Marche Slave) in 1876 known at first as the “Serbo-Russian March” based on Serbian folk melodies as “Come, my dearest, why so sad this morning?”

Wow it's funny but I noticed the people on the foreign list and strangely enough they want nothing to do with the serbs today.

In fact all the Serbs have left is to look back at a list of names and claim some kind of national greatness, and take a glance away from sucky reality they are in right now.

To 9:16 blogger,
after reviewing Serbia's impressive laundry list Resume we regret to inform you that albanians will not be needing your countrys unsolicited services.
On another note: it's hillarious when they list Lepa Brena and a bunch of drunken gypsy musicians to represent Serbia.

Anonymous said...

The list of notable Serbs includes Ljotic, Nedic, Mladic and Arkan--LOL! What kind of country posts on its list of most notable citizens the head of its Nazi Party (Ljotic), the Quisling head of its WWII government that rounded up the Jews (Nedic), the most wanted war criminal in Europe (Mladic), and another warcriminal/mafioso who was gunned down in a gangland slaying (Arkan). The answer: Serbia--because those ARE its notable citizens!

Damn that list backfired on the poor Serb's a bit sad that we have this country on our northern border...we need a defense force against ignorance, not against violence.

Did an albanian just call someone a drunken gypsy musician. Now that sounds pretty racist to me.

Just to clarify some things. Enki Bilal (Enes Bilalovic) is not a Serb. He is a French-Bosnian film director but before everything, a comic artist. He was born in Belgrade (at the time capital of Federal Socialist Repuclic of Yugoslavia), that is right. But his father was declared himself as Bosnian, and his mother was Chech. If anything, a French-Yugoslav would be a more proper.
