UN mission chief in Kosovo to resign: reports
font size    

Soren Jessen-Petersen, chief of the U.N. mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), was due to resign from his post shortly and leave Kosovo, said news reports reaching in Belgrade from Kosovo's capital of Pristina on Wednesday.

Citing international sources, Pristina-based dailies Express and Zeri reported that Jessen-Petersen would confirm his departure on Friday, after a regular meeting with Kosovo Premier Agim Ceku.

Jessen-Petersen, a Dane, was named as chief of UNMIK in June 2004 by U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan.

"This most famous administrator chief in Kosovo will at the same time be the last one," the Express reported, adding that Jessen-Petersen would stay in Kosovo for just a few more days.

Yet on Wednesday, UNMIK spokeswoman Marcia Pool neither confirmed nor denied claims by Pristina dailies that Jessen-Petersen would soon leave the post.

Kosovo has been placed under U.N. administration since 1999 following the NATO bombing. The U.N.-mediated future status talks between Serbia and the Kosovo Albanians began in February in Vienna and are under pressure to reach a settlement by the year's end.
