PRISTINA, Kosovo (AP) — Kosovo’s outgoing president, Ahtifete Jahjaga, says international experts have concluded that a border demarcation deal with Montenegro is in line with international standards.
Three experts from the U.S., Britain and Germany considered as regular the process of establishing the border with neighboring Montenegro. That has been harshly opposed by the country’s political opposition, which claims Kosovo is losing thousands of hectares of land.
Kosovo’s political life has been in turmoil since last September as the opposition has disrupted Parliament’s work and its supporters have clashed with police, also opposing a deal with Serbia giving more powers to ethnic Serbs in Kosovo.
The opposition, which is now boycotting Parliament, on Thursday did not accept the experts’ conclusion and said it will continue the anti-government protests.
