Slovakia is interested in increasing its participation in the European Union's EULEX mission in Kosovo, which commenced on December 9, Foreign Affairs Minister Ján Kubiš said at a press conference.

According to Kubiš, the mission - which is designed to help Kosovar authorities to secure stability - has been politically supported by Slovakia from the very start, and currently six Slovak policemen are taking part in it.

"We've submitted numerous candidacies to Brussels, which is selecting the specialisations needed. We hope that our participation in the mission will grow," Kubiš said.

EULEX is the European Union’s largest civilian mission. Around 1,400 foreign nationals, including more than 1,000 police officers, are deployed throughout Kosovo. They are supported by 500 local staff. The central element of the mission is to support local ownership through mentoring, monitoring and advising the local rule of law institutions such as the judiciary and police. TASR
