Kumanovo Agreement Kosovo

The main provisions of the agreement should make it possible to cite sources who cite Russia`s role in the immediate resolution of the agreement. There was an allegation of a meeting between Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov and US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. A first agreement was reached between the two sides, involving a commitment by NATO to stop its airstrikes and the willingness to withdraw a passage it wanted to incorporate into the Kumanovo agreement, in exchange for Russian support for an upcoming UN resolution agreed by the Group of Eight. [2] Without Russia`s participation, the UN Security Council resolution on Kosovo would not have been adopted and NATO airstrikes would have continued. [2] NATO said the signing of a military-technical agreement on the withdrawal of Serbian troops was the next step towards peace in the troubled province of Kosovo. Once the agreement is signed and NATO can verify that Yugoslav forces leave the region, the bombing of Yugoslavia will be suspended. An agreement to “normalis relations” between Kosovo and Serbia, signed in 2013 by the EU, is at an impasse, sabotaged by the mutual mistrust of all parties concerned. The term “normalize” is obviously deliberately vague. However, for all the Kosovo officials with whom I have spoken, the meaning of this term is clear – full mutual recognition. The armed forces of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia will not enter, return or be on the territory of Kosovo without the agreement of the Commander of the international security force KFOR.

KFOR has controlled and monitored the border between Kosovo and Montenegro in accordance with the Military Technical Agreement and the maps annexed to this Agreement (annexed map). The map of 9 June 1999 showed the border with Kosovo and a 5 km buffer zone. If states do not enter the territory of Kosovo or if KFOR has not controlled and monitored the border, it means that this line and territory are defined on the NATO/KFOR map, which is perfectly compatible with the administrative line 1974-1988-1999-2008 and 2016. While the authorities of Montenegro did not have access to this 5 km area on Montenegrin territory, during this period the citizens of Kosovo entered, stayed and moved without being hindered by the Montenegrin authorities. Kosovar citizens have also used this area as pasture. Some of them also developed several stores, improvised fuel pumps, cigarette and coffee smuggling. In 2004, an action by KFOR and the Kosovo police was carried out, where citizens were removed from the area. Improvised shops are removed, a lot of oil, coffee and cigarettes are seized, pipes used to bring fuel into the village of Novo Selo. Kosovo`s police powers First, after the war in Kosovo, KFOR was the sole authority to control and monitor Kosovo`s borders. With the establishment of the Kosovo Police Service, now the Kosovo Police, with the strengthening and development of its capabilities, it began to control and monitor Kosovo`s borders with KFOR through joint patrols. .
