Parliament of Kosovo has decided to hold a professional debate on the issue of border demarcation with Montenegro.

These discussions are expected to put experts in front of each other and analyze the report of the state commission that drafted the agreement reached in August last year between Kosovo and Montenegro.

Prime Minister of Kosovo, Isa Mustafa said that political parties have agreed for this issue to be discussed before it reaches parliament.

“We believe that there is still room to examine all opportunities in order for the law to include the arguing of facts, that would prevent future situations between Kosovo and Montenegro”, he said.

Meanwhile, member of Self Determination committee, Aida Derguti said that the meeting that will be held on 3 August, will clarify the stance of MPs, as the majority of MPs have not declared if they are in favor or against the current agreement.

Meanwhile, Alliance for the Future of Kosovo has praised the decision of parliament for this debate.

“This decision should have been taken before, but it is a good opportunity for all of those who are defending this form of demarcation with Montenegro, which takes away from Kosovo over 8 thousand hectares of land, to see that this agreement is damaging and that it affects the territorial integrity of the country”, says among others AAK’s statement. /balkaneu.com/
