PRISTINA – Kosovo’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Behgjet Pacolli believes the demarcation between Montenegro and Kosovo must be resolved.

He said that the contract had been signed, and Montenegro had ratified it. Therefore, as Pacolli said, the issue was de jure a done deal.

“I have no problem with this, as I believe that the agreement should be respected. We do not have any conflict with Montenegro, but our public is divided on this issue. This can be seen in the Kosovo parliament. As far as Montenegro is concerned, the case is closed, so we should see how to solve the issue,” Pacolli told Deutsche Welle.

He also added that he did not believe “Montenegro wanted to take Kosovo’s territory or that Kosovo wanted to take the territory of Montenegro”.
