Today, the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) with the Kosovo Government enters into force
The Status of Forces Agreement between the Kosovo Government and Government of the United States of America enables us to deepen bilateral cooperation and partnership in promoting security for the people of Kosovo and contributing to peace and stability in the Balkans.
This bilateral Status of Forces Agreement, signed on February 18, 2012, defines the legal status of military personnel of the United States of America and US citizens who are working in Kosovo on programs supporting our joint security. The Agreement will facilitate a series of joint activities, such as the inclusion of the Iowa National Guard in a State Partnership Program with the Kosovo Security Force (KSF), which will continue further the development of our long-term and sustainable security cooperation. The SOFA demonstrates the strength of the alliance between the USA and Kosovo.
