“Montenegro Prime Minister Dusko Markovic is expected to visit Kosovo on 6 February. The news has been confirmed by Gazeta Express by the Prime Minister’s Office.

Montenegrin leader will visit Kosovo on the invitation of his Kosovo counterpart, Ramush Haradinaj, and both prime ministers are expected to open the way for solving the demarcation issue.

Kosovo and Montenegro reached an agreement on border demarcation in 2015 but Kosovo Parliament has not ratified the deal yet because of opposition claims that Kosovo lacks territory. Ratifying this deal is one of the remaining criteria for Kosovo to obtain visa liberalization with the EU.

The Government proceeded with ratifying the draft law of the deal to Parliament pending voting procedures. Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj is a member of the opposition, stating that Kosovo loses more than 8000 hectares of land.

After becoming prime minister in September 2017, Haradinaj dismissed members of the State Commission on the maintenance of the border, who negotiated the deal with Montenegro.” (Gazeta Express)
