Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj says the Assembly of Kosovo will not vote current version of the Agreement on border demarcation with Montenegro.
Prime Minister Haradinaj said that the Government will proceed to the Assembly current version of the Draft Law on demarcation and will attach an additional report which is expected to be handed over to t by the state Commission on demarcation appointed by Haradinaj to review the disputed border deal with Montenegro signed in 2015. During an interview with Klan Kosova TV Haradinaj said that he remains skeptical that the ruling coalition has the majority to ratify the Agreement hinting that most likely the border dispute with Montenegro will be solved through international arbitrage. “The Agreement will be rejected by the parliament opening the way for this issue be addressed at the international arbitrage or ask renegotiation of a new agreement with Montenegro. I prefer reaching a deal with Montenegro for addressing this issue at the international arbitrage,” Haradinaj said. The Prime Minister hopes that once this issue will be addressed at relevant instances, the EU will be notified on the modalities and enable Kosovo visa free regime. Ratification of the Agreement on border demarcation is one of the last criteria for Kosovars to get visa free regime with the EU Schengen area. “It is obvious ruling coalition lacks two third of votes in Parliament,” Haradinaj said.
