Soren Jessen-Petersen was speaking at NATO headquarters in Brussels a day after he announced that he would be resigning at the end of the month for personal reasons.

NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer said the alliance's 17,000-strong KFOR peacekeeping force would remain in place over the negotiating period.
