Thaçi temporarily withdraws Kosovo army bill

Hashim Thaçi

PRISTINA – Kosovo President Hashim Thaçi has sent a formal request to Assembly Speaker Kadri Veseli that a bill on transforming the Kosovo Security Force into an army not be put on the body’s agenda, noting the process required constitutional amendments, Tanjug reports.

“Today I sent a letter to Veseli to request that the bill not be put on the agenda until our institutions and strategic partners provide full support for this being done through constitutional change,” the RTS quoted Thaçi as saying.

Speaking at a conference on possibilities for establishing a Kosovo army, Thaçi told Serb representatives the Kosovo authorities were not giving up on forming an armed force and that their opposition to the plan would be “the biggest mistake.”
