To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the situation in Kosovo. 
§ Mr. Tony Lloyd
NATO'S key objectives have been achieved. There are now 33,000 KFOR troops in Kosovo, under the command of General Sir Michael Jackson. KFOR' s objective is to provide robust and even-handed support for all the citizens of Kosovo regardless of ethnic, religious or cultural background. The Secretary-General of the UN has made appointments to the key positions to the UN Mission in Kosovo whose work is underway. The UK will continue to play a leading role in support of both KFOR and UNMIK.
