PODGORICA – The agreement on the border between Montenegro and Kosovo stipulates the possibility to establish some technical corrections of the border line, but there are no major changes, said Montenegrin foreign minister Srđan Darmanović.

The presidents of Montenegro and Kosovo, Filip Vujanović and Hashim Thaci, signed a joint statement on Friday calling on the Kosovo Parliament to ratify the State Border Agreement signed in Vienna on 26 August.

Asked to comment on whether there would be border changes based on the agreement, Darmanović said that the political statement of Thaçi and Vujanović was a confirmation of what was already stated in the Agreement’s Article 7.

“Accordingly, there are no significant changes,” Darmanović told reporters, and explained that Article 7 stipulates that, after both countries ratify the border agreement, the Commission must go on the field and execute delimitation.
