United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo
Ahead of the visit of US envoy to the Western Balkans Gabriel Escobar and EU envoy Miroslav Lajcak to Pristina and Belgrade, Less says that he is skeptical that any solution will be reached, because he does not believe there is anything Pristina can offer Serbia to compensate for the loss of Kosovo.

From the post-war period in 2000 until Kosovo's declaration of independence in 2008, Kosovo was run by the UN's interim administration, UNMIK, which together with domestic political leaders attempted to create institutions that would be able to implement a newly-established legal framework for the country.

A witness at the trial for the 2018 killing of Kosovo Serb political party leader Oliver Ivanovic, told Pristina Basic Court on Wednesday that he wanted to change the testimony he previously gave to Kosovo's Special Prosecution.

Deputy Prime Minister Besnik Bislimi in talks with EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell announced that, following the local elections in Kosovo, "the Kosovo government will continue with the operations" seen on October 13th, when Kosovo special police entered northern Kosovska Mitrovica and Zvecan.
He said that in the coming days, he would analyze what exactly happened, reports Koha. "As the leader of Self-Determination Movement, I am pleased to see so many candidates in the second round, as well as a large number of councilors throughout Kosovo. I am ready to cooperate with every municipality. This is a great victory for democracy", Kurti said.
Grenell wrote on Twitter that he is convinced that the latest violence would not have happened if Donald Trump and his team were still in office.
Grenell stated that the head of UNMIK blames poor communication, the EU, Von der Leyen and NATO for the recent violence. But he is the one who is ineffective & slow.
