Annan Appoints Special Envoy For Review Of Kosovo

Annan Appoints Special Envoy For Review Of Kosovo

New York, Jun 3 2005

United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan has appointed Ambassador Kai Eide
, Permanent Representative of Norway to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), as his Special Envoy to carry out a comprehensive review of Kosovo.

The comprehensive review will be initiated this summer, in accordance with Security Council resolutions. It will consist of consultations with the parties and the international community, and be broad in scope in order to assess the current situation and the conditions for the possible next steps in the process.

“Mr. Eide’s previous experience with the United Nations and his in-depth knowledge of the Balkans make him the ideal person for this endeavour,” said UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric. The review will look at the actual political realities as well as the formal preconditions for launching the future status process on the basis of continuing and effective progress towards implementation of the Standards for Kosovo, which are to be achieved in order to establish in Kosovo a multi-ethnic, stable and democratic society founded on the rule of law.
