Haradinaj: Kosovo Will Make Sovereign Decision on Dec. 14 to Transform KSF

Kosovo Premier Ramush Haradinaj stated on Dec. 6 that Kosovo would make "a sovereign decision on Dec. 14, on the transformation of the Kosovo Security Force (KSF) into the Kosovo Armed Forces," adding that the decision "encompasses the vision and wish of the citizens of Kosovo to preserve and protect western values."

He wrote on Facebook that he had conveyed the stand of the Kosovo institutions regarding the transformation of KSF to NATO General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg over the phone.

"I have informed Secretary General Stoltenberg that Kosovo is determined to carry out the process of transition of KSF, which will secure a professional, multi-ethnic and credible service for the citizens of Kosovo," Haradinaj wrote.

NATO announced earlier that Secretary General Stoltenberg had telephone conversations on Dec. 6 with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo Premier Ramush Haradinaj to inform them about the outcome of the session of NATO foreign ministers on the Western Balkans.

Stoltenberg told them that Serbia and Kosovo should demonstrate calm and restraint and avoid any provocative statements or actions.

"With Mr. Haradinaj, I raised the plan to move ahead with the transformation of the Kosovo Security Force into an army. I stressed that such a move is ill-timed, goes against the advice of many NATO Allies, and can have negative repercussions on Kosovo's prospects for Euro-Atlantic integration. I reiterated that should the mandate of the Kosovo Security Force evolve, NATO will have to examine the level of our engagement with the Kosovo Security Force," NATO quoted Stoltenberg as saying.
