Several daily newspapers cover yesterday’s inaugural meeting of the Consultative Group of the Internal Security Sector in Pristina. Zëri says that Kosovo has finally started to set up its security architecture, “which it will days after the resolution of its final status”.
The paper quotes SRSG Søren Jessen-Petersen as saying that as the process of resolving Kosovo’s political status has commenced, “it is important for local institutions to continue standards implementation and reforms in local government”.
Prime Minister Kosumi was quoted as saying, “Kosovo has a special place in regional security, therefore, it needs to build security structures in cooperation with the international community”. The PM has suggested that within the process of reviewing security in Kosovo one should evaluate the role of the Kosovo Protection Corps, which according to him, would contribute to these processes alongside NATO.
