NATO Mission in Kosovo (KFOR)
Kosovo Force (KFOR) is currently deployed in the Balkans to maintain a safe and secure environment, freedom of movement of itself, the international civil presence, and other international organisations. The United Nations, the European Union and other international actors continue to support the development of a stable, democratic, multi-ethnic and peaceful Kosovo.
The mission was launched in 1999, as a peace-support operation and derives its mandate from the UN Security Council Resolution 1244 and international agreements.
As of today, approximately 3,600 troops provided by 28 countries help ensure that KFOR's objectives are met.
