NATO "re-examines" Kosovo mission
BRUSSELS -- NATO has started re-examining its peacekeeping operation in Kosovo after the unilateral secession declaration, reports suggest.
The western military alliance's spokesman James Appathurai said in Brussels Wednesday that the ambassadors from the 26 member states have decided to discuss the 17,000-soldier strong mission, "in order to adjust to the development of the situation on the ground".
Appaturai said that the military leadership will use political guidelines to prepare a draft operational plan, "taking into account new tasks", Beta news agency said.
The NATO spokesman, however, did not make it clear what those tasks might be, but pointed out that "all that NATO does will be within its UN mandate and with full consent of the 26 members".
