Prime Minister of Kosovo, Isa Mustafa has launched a fresh appeal to opposition parties not to block the ratification of the demarcation agreement with Montenegro.

He said that any obstacle in this process delays the liberalization of visas and the European future of Kosovo.

According to him, “it is unreasonable for the opposition to deny a fundamental right of the citizens”.

“To make up a great untruth that Kosovo is losing 8200 hectares of land without offering any facts with the sole purpose of blocking the integration process, is a big blow given to our country”, says PM Mustafa.

Kosovo’s PM is demanding from the opposition to give up on violence and help the country’s Euro Atlantic agenda.

“The opposition must five up from its methods of violence, teargas and Molotov, because this way, they cannot hope that they will come in power and claim that they enabled the liberalization of visas”, Mustafa says.

As far as demarcation is concerned, Mustafa invites all parliamentary parties to decide in a rational way.

Meanwhile, international law professor, Vigan Qorrolli, says that this issue can only be solved through the International Court of Arbitrage in Hague.

“If the sides agree on sending the issue of the border demarcation with Montenegro in Hague, then this issue may receive a solution until the end of the year. Under these circumstances, we will have delays in the process for the liberalization of visas”, he says. /balkaneu.com/
