He said that the force had alleviated suffering of Kosovars by offering relief assistance and contributing to efforts aimed maintaining peace and security in the region. ' The force's military mission was tinged with a humanitarian touch,' he said, adding that the trip to home and transportation of equipment could take a month. 'Coordination in regards to necessary arrangement for the handover to the replacing force was underway,' he said. He also thanked the UAE Armed Forces Command for its support.

Meanwhile, France today hailed the UAE for its contribution to peace-keeping operations in Kosovo. 'While the UAE force were preparing to leave for home, it is suitable to praise the UAE for its contribution to KFOR and for the exemplary military cooperation between the UAE and France,' French Foreign Ministry spokesman Francois Revasou said today. ' The critical mission of the force has been carried out perfectly despite the rough terrain of the region. Of course, we are sorry for the departure of the UAE force, although we want them to stay,' he said. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
