Government in Kosovo will attempt to ratify the demarcation agreement, opposition warns protests

Government of Kosovo is expected to proceed once again with the ratification of the demarcation agreement with Montenegro in parliament.

This, due to the fact that the state commission in charge of measuring the territory, concluded that Kosovo has not lost any territory during the border demarcation with the neighboring country.

Spokesman of the government of Kosovo, Faton Abdullahu says that before this bill reaches parliament, a debate will take place between MPs.

“Whoever has a suggestion or a fact to offer to this commission is free to do so in order for the commission to examine them and come to a final conclusion. After this, the government will proceed with the ratification of the bill in parliament”, Abdullahu said.

According to him, the delays in the ratification of this agreement cause delays in the European integration process of the country, namely in the liberalization of the visa regime for the citizens of Kosovo.

“We believe that there will not be any unjustifiable delays for the ratification, because this is a vital and critical issue for Kosovo’s interest, as it is directly related to the liberalization of the visa regime for the citizens of Kosovo”, he says.

On the other hand, representatives of opposition parties in the country continue to contest the findings of the state commission in charge of measuring the territory of Kosovo.

Self Determination MP, Albulena Haxhiu declared that if the government attempts to pass the agreement in parliament, the opposition’s reaction will be very strong.

“We will protest against this ratification in parliament and outside of it. If the government attempts to ratify this agreement, we will respond with the same consistency that we have responded in other sessions”. /balkaneu.com/
