PRISTINA - Outgoing Minister of the Ministry for the Kosovo Security Force Agim Ceku stated that Kosovo will soon get its army because at one of the first sessions upon its constitution, the Kosovo parliament will adopt the decision on the transformation of the Security Force into the Armed Forces of Kosovo.
Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) leader Isa Mustafa is tipped to become Kosovo's next Prime Minister after an agreement between the main political aprties to form a coalition cabinet, sources say.
