The Kosovo-Pomoravlje District (Serbian: Косовско-поморавски округ/Kosovsko-pomoravski okrug, pronounced [kôsoʋskoː pômǒraʋskiː ôkruːɡ]) was a district of Kosovo and Metohija between 1990 and 1999; at that time, Kosovo was part of Serbia. Kosovo declared independence in 2008. The region is called Kosovo Pomoravlje. The area now has a population of 217,726. The seat of the district was in the city of Gjilan. Along with the rest of Kosovo i Metohija, it was transferred to UN administration, a situation accepted by the Serbian government. In 2000 the UN administration renamed the district the District of Gjilan as part of a series of reforms rejected by Serbia.
