Following a request by the Institutions in Kosovo, the Commander of the Kosovo Force (COM KFOR) has requested international assistance to help the latter in coping with the COVID-19 pandemic through the expansion of their medical response capacity. The appropriate military channels endorsed COM KFOR’s request while concluding that the requested capabilities are not readily available through military channels and forwarded it to the International Staff.
