NATO to appoint its envoy at UN team for Kosovo talks

(Brussels, DTT-NET.COM) – NATO is expected to name its envoy to assist UN team on Kosovo status talks led by former-Finnish president Martti Ahtissari, following the moves made by EU and US.

James Appathurai, the spokesperson of the 26 nation military alliance told reporters in Brussels that in the coming days an member of international staff of the alliance will be named, who should be working with Ahtissari’s team stationed in Vienna, Austria.

Earlier EU has appointed Stefan Lehne and US appointed Frank Wisner, to join the UN negotiation team on the talks between Serbian and Kosovan leadership on the future status of UN administrated province.

However, contrary to the EU and US envoys the NATO new envoy will not have a political role but only technical, helping the team to develop security terms necessary in Kosovo, ones the resolution of the new status is achieved.
