Slovenian Troops in Kosovo Have Little Fears over Independence

Peć, 14 February - Just as Kosovo is anticipating a decision on its status, some 160 Slovenian troops stationed there will be replaced with the 350-strong 17th rotation, heading for a six-month spell in the NATO-led KFOR mission. Slovenian peacekeepers expect no major problems in the face of the imminent declaration of Kosovo independence.
