All dailies report on the visit of PM Bajram Kosumi to former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) where he met the Prime Minister as well as leaders of Albanian political parties there.
Zëri highlights that Kosumi said border demarcation should not be an issue to burden relation between Kosovo and FYROM, while Buckovski stated that if Kosovo had the right to determine demarcation, ‘the issue would have been concluded very fast’.
Kosumi assured Buckovski that the Kosovo Government respected territorial integrity and sovereignty of FYROM and that border demarcation was something that would be solved once final status of Kosovo was settled.
Both officials agreed to continue further talks on free trade agreement. ‘We agreed to raise this [FTA issue] on a political level. Talks are successfully being led and are close to an ending,’ said Kosumi, adding that next week Pristina would host a meeting of political experts to discuss the agreement on free trade.
Koha says Kosumi was received by Buckovski as if he were visiting privately because the venue of the meeting was not in the Government building, but in unofficial premises.
