Kosovo to have own Interior Ministry after Christmas - UNMIK official

Text of report by Kosovo Albanian television KohaVision TV on 7 December

[Announcer] After Christmas, Kosova [Kosovo] will have its own Interior Ministry, said head of UNMIK [United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo] Pillar I Jean Dussourd, today. He said that UNMIK had informed the Kosova government earlier that two new ministries would be added at the end of the year. In the meantime UNMIK chief [Soeren] Jessen-Petersen said Tuesday [6 December] that UNMIK would not allow politicization of these two ministries which are expected to establish very soon, but for which he gave no timetable. He said the establishment of the ministries was in the interest of all Kosova citizens and not only in the interest of the political parties. He also said that he and Prime Minister Kosumi had agreed on this. Kosovo government is awaiting the official note to start preparations for the establishment of these two ministries. New York [the UN] has already given its consent.

I'm really interested to see how this ministry will be ethnically structured, how will it treat national minoriteis (especially the Serbian) and which relation will it have to the Serbian Interior Ministry if eventually Kosovo-Metohija remains in Serbia.
