Kosovo Parliament is expected to convene again next week to finally ratify the Agreement on border demarcation with Montenegro. MPs of Srpska List, who boycotted last week’s session, have definitely agreed to vote its ratification. This is what Kosovo Deputy Prime Minister, Behgjet Pacolli is saying, adding that Srspka has not conditioned its vote on demarcation.
Pacolli talking to Gazeta Express on Friday said that he is convinced Serbian MPs in Kosovo Parliament will vote the ratification of the Agreement on border demarcation with Montengro. “(Serbian MPs) will vote next week, so the voting has been postponed for next week. Srpska List will vote the Agreement,” Pacolli told Gazeta Express. The First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, has denied media reports that Srpska List has contiioned its vote on demarcation by asking shares in Trepca mining complex. He said that there is a Law on Trepca which needs to be implemented. “According to the Law minorities should have their representative in the Trepca Board,” he said.
Political leaders held on Thursday a meeting with the US Ambassador to Kosovo, Greg Delawie. Pacolli who attended the meeting told Gazeta Express that they have discussed latest development, focusing on the demarcation issue. “It was discussed on current situation and it was decided that next week to hold the Parliament session on ratification of demarcation,” he said. The Speaker of Parliament, Kadri Veseli, after the meeting of the Assembly’s Presidency on Friday said that they are still short of votes, and urged the Vetevendosje MPs, who are opposing the demarcation to vote the Agreement. Ratification of demarcation is one of the last criteira for Kosovo to get visa liberalisation with the EU. /Gazeta Express/
