PRISTINA (Kosovo), December 22 (SeeNews) - The government of Denmark said it plans to provide up to 30 million euro ($33.9 million) in financial assistance to Kosovo over the following five years to help the country in its green transition and promote rule of law, democracy and human rights.

The funding will mainly support Kosovo's green transition, while up to 2.5 million euro will be dedicated to projects to promote rule of law, democracy and human rights, according to a joint statement by the governments of Denmark and Kosovo published by Denmark's justice ministry on Monday.

The governments of Kosovo and Denmark agreed to conduct regular political consultations in areas of mutual interest and to strengthen cooperation on green transition and the promotion of rule of law, democracy and human rights.

Kosovo's government also agreed to rent prison cells for 300 inmates to Denmark for an annual fee of 15 million euro with an initial term of five-years. Denmark, which is faced with a shotage of prison space and prison guards, will send to Kosovo non-Danish citizens, according to Kosovo media.
