Swedish Soldiers Remain in Kosovo

Swedish Defence Minister Leni Björklund pledged Monday to keep this country’s peacekeeping force in Kosovo.

Björklund was speaking in the capital Pristina, on her fourth visit to Kosovo. She greeted the 350 Swedish soldiers there, who are part of the NATO-led peacekeeping mission. Björklund also met Kosovo’s Prime Minister Agim Ceku.

Kosovo is part of Serbia and Montenegro, but has been administered by the United Nations since 1999. Its future status is being negotiated in United Nations-led talks.
