The international civil and security forces have been deployed in Kosovo under the UN auspices.

The Armed Forces of the Czech Republic (ACR) have participated in this operation since 1999, originally with a reconnaissance company followed by a mechanised unit. Since accomplishment of the Czech mechanised unit's participation on NATO-led operation on the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the force deployed in Kosovo had become the principal ACR foreign mission in the Balkans. The Czech Task Force left its base at Sajkovac in 2011.
