KFOR commander Italian General Fabio Mini announced in Pristine that by the end of the current year the present number of approximately 30,000 servicemen of the international peace-keeping forces in Kosovo (KFOR) would be reduced by half.
According to him, many duties to ensure security in the region will be transferred to the UN civil mission in Kosovo and to Kosovo police.
In his turn Gregory Johnson, commander-in-chief of NATO forces in the south of Europe, indicated that the reduction in the number of international peace-keepers would be carried out in accordance with the earlier approved plans.
According to him, the security situation in Kosovo has improved significantly and there is no need to maintain the present number of servicemen.
