RTK Live: Kosovo Assembly to review thursday legislative package on army15 October 2018 | 19:15 | FOCUS News Agency
The Parliament’s Presidency proceeded this morning to plenary session a package of laws enabling the transformation of the Kosovo Security Force (KSF) into Army of Kosovo.
Procedures for final adoption of this legislative package are expected to be concluded by the end of November.
“In partnership with the US and NATO, we will establish the Army of Kosovo. No matter if someone likes it or not, it will happen this year," said Veseli.
Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj said the US supports the creation of Kosovo Army through amending current laws, after meeting the US Defence Secretary, James Mattis on 28 September.
Earlier initiatives to transform the KSF into Army were not supported by the US and NATO saying that changes should be done through constitutional amendments.
According to legislation in place, every constitutional amendment requires a vote of two-thirds of all MP and two-thirds of the 20 non-Albanian MPs. Kosovo Serb MPs, who hold 10 of the 20 seats reserved for non-Albanian communities, have blocked every such initiative.
