Kosovo: UN envoy discusses regional concerns with leaders in Mitrovica
The senior United Nations envoy in Kosovo today held talks in Mitrovica with key officials as part of his ongoing bid to promote stability and development there.
Michael Steiner, Secretary-General Kofi Annan's Special Representative, discussed the region's current situation with leaders of the Mitrovica Municipal Assembly, including its President, Faruk Spahija, and Deputy President, Mursan Ibrahimi.
Mr. Steiner, who heads the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), also spontaneously took the officials to see the Kosovo Trust Agency office in the northern part of Mitrovica.
The Agency is widely considered one of the most important institutions for Kosovo's economic future, because it will be managing the privatization of socially owned enterprises while overseeing the management and restructuring of publicly owned businesses.
