Peacekeeping Operations in Kosovo Report
Text of a Letter from the President to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House And Senate Committees on Appropriations and Armed Services, the House Committee on International Relations, And the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations
November 2, 2001

Dear Mr. Chairman:  (Dear Representative:)  (Dear Senator:)

As required by section 1213 of the Floyd D. Spence National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2001, Public Law 106-398, I transmit herewith a semiannual report on the contributions of European nations and organizations to the peacekeeping operations in Kosovo.

This report, prepared by the Department of State, concludes that the Europeans have carried a significant portion of the aid-sharing burden in the region and that their commitment to reconstruction, humanitarian relief, and institution and peace-building has been a strong one. Continued attention and commitments of assistance from all donors remains crucial for medium- and long-term development in Kosovo.
