Kosovo’s parliamentary foreign committee will officially discuss today the bill on the ratification of the border demarcation agreement between Kosovo and Montenegro.

Once this bill is discussed, it will be sent to the parliament’s steering committee which will then schedule a plenary session for the ratification of the agreement.

Meanwhile, PM Isa Mustafa will participate today in the conference of the State Commission for the Demarcation of the State Border.

Mustafa is once again expected to talk on the issue of demarcation before this bill is voted in parliament.

Meanwhile, the state committee for demarcation issued a statement yesterday where it said that Kosovo has not lost any territory in the demarcation process with Montenegro, like the opposition claims.

It has been a year now that the issue of the border demarcation with Montenegro has been sparking many reactions by the opposition which blocked parliament’s proceedings using teargas as a way of preventing the ratification of the agreement.

Meanwhile, 80 votes are needed in parliament to ratify this agreement. /balkaneu.com/
