The session at which the UN Security Council will discuss the situation in Kosovo will be held on March 23, the world organisation has announced on its website.

KFOR representatives could not confirm on Tuesday that the number of members of this NATO peacekeeping force in Kosovo and Metohija will be reduced, whereas the Serb representatives have different views on the possibility of downsizing the international military presence in this province.

KFOR Spokesman Adriano Graziani told Tanjug that so far this mission has not received any information on reductions in number of KFOR troops in Kosovo. This is a political decision and we have no information as yet regarding any KFOR reduction, Graziani stated.

Bio Commander of the Multinational Task Force South, Thomas Starlinger (Austrian Army) told Vienna daily Oberosterreichische Nachrichten on Tuesday that NATO is planning on reducing the number of soldiers within the KFOR structure in 2009 by 50 percent, unless the current condition in Kosovo drastically changes.

Serbian State Secretary in the Ministry for Kosovo and Metohija Zvonimir Stevic pointed out that the reduction of KFOR presence would be harmful for Serbs and non-Albanians in the province, who justifiably fear that the withdrawal of international force would additionally jeopardize their safety.

The session at which the UN Security Council will discuss the situation in Kosovo will be held on March 23, the world organisation has announced on its website.

During the session of this body, whose rotating presidency has been assumed by Libya, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and UNMIK Chief Lamberto Zannier will present their report on Kosovo and Metohija. The participants of the session are also expected to discuss the implementation of Ban's six-point plan on Kosovo. The members of the Security Council hope to receive the UN secretary general's report in the next couple of days.
