Czech Republic to withdraw troops from Kosovo

Czech Defence Minister Alexandr Vondra stated in Priština on Monday that his country will withdraw 300 of its KFOR soldiers from Kosovo, thus leaving 90 troops.

The withdrawn soldiers will serve as a reserve and will be engaged again should the need for it arise, Vondra said after meeting with Kosovo Deputy Prime Minister Hajredin Kuci.

Vondra said that the Czech Republic supports establishing a dialogue between Belgrade and Priština, and pointed out that the European Union and the U.S. have to remain engaged in this matter.

Kuci said that Priština is willing to establish talks with Belgrade concerning issues such as peace, stability and European integration.
