Kosovo rebels to disarm
K-For has already begun confiscating KLA guns
Nato has signed an agreement with the Kosovo Liberation Army to demilitarise its fighters, effectively ending the KLA's existence as a fighting force.
The deal signed by the KLA early on Monday puts the Nato-led international peacekeepers, K-For, in control of Kosovo and marks the start of a new phase of building peace in the province.
The soldiers will also have to stop wearing uniforms in public, and take down roadblocks and checkpoints.
The agreement was signed by the British K-For Commander General Sir Mike Jackson and Hashim Thaci, political head of the KLA.
"Today is a turning point in our mission to establish an enduring climate of peace and security for all the people of Kosovo," General Jackson said.
Pullout ahead of schedule
Yugoslav forces completed their withdrawal on Sunday morning - well ahead of the midnight deadline they had agreed to.
Nato Secretary-General Javier Solana announced the formal end to the alliance's air war against Yugoslavia:
"I have accordingly decided to terminate with immediate effect the air campaign which I suspended on June 10," he said.
