The question of disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) has undergone different stages. As a matter of fact, when war ended and the deployment of NATO forces in Kosovo completed, one of the main challenges in the country was the total demilitarization of Kosovo. The conflict ended with the signing of the Kumanovo Agreement between NATO and the Yugoslav Army, which was taken into consideration when the UNSC approved 1244 Resolution on Kosovo. This resolution explicitly called for the demobilization and reconstruction of Kosovo.
