Interim Administrative Council meets to discuss new administrative structure: Kosovo's newly established Interim Administrative Council met in Pristina today to discuss the draft regulation on the joint administrative structure launched last week and the rules of procedure. The Council was established following a landmark agreement by three Kosovo Albanian political leaders on 15 December to share the provisional management of Kosovo with UNMIK until elections are held next year. The Principal Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General, Mr Jock Covey, said after the meeting that the Council discussed in a "very professional, open and cooperative" manner draft rules "that will be useful in our work in the future". Mr. Covey said the Council also discussed the 14 departments that will make up the new joint administrative structure.
