The North Atlantic Council, NATO's highest decision-making body, is expected to make a decision on whether to convert the Kosovo Security Force into a full-fledged army.

Established in 2009, the force consists of 2,500 active and 800 reserve members and is primarily responsible for crisis response.

"NATO nations are considering the right time for the KSF final endorsement," KFOR spokesman Alexander Willing said. 

"The North Atlantic Council, NATO's highest decision-making body, will make a political decision based on the assessment of NATO's military authorities," he added.

The announcement came after leaders of Serbia and Kosovo held another round of peace talks .
