The German parliament on Thursday backed a government decision to extend the mandate of the Bundeswehr mission in Kosovo until June 30, 2011, but reduced the upper limit of the number of troops from 3,500 to 2,500.

The mission extension was backed by 486 parliament members from among the ruling Democratic-Christians and Liberals and opposition Social-Democrats and the Green Party, while MPs of the Left, which was formed with a merger of the successors of the former East German Communists and the WASG Party were against it, underlining that the mission is contrary to international law.

Bundestag thus confirmed the decision of the German government to extend the mandate of the country's troops in Kosovo. Bundeswehr has had 100,000 troops stationed in Kosovo since 1999, German media recalled.
