PODGORICA – The Parliament of Kosovo ratified the Agreement on Border Demarcation with Montenegro. Thus, the demarcation agreement was adopted almost three years after its signing in Vienna.

The Parliament sitting at which the issue was discussed was interrupted four times because of teargas that was thrown in the session hall.

The teargas was activated for the fourth time despite intensified security measures. Three members of the Self-Determination movement activated tear gas the previous three times. They were subsequently arrested.

Due to the incidents, eight deputies of the Self-Determination were suspended.

The ratification of the border demarcation with Montenegro is one of the key EU conditions for visa liberalization for citizens of Kosovo.
