Prishtina [Pristina], 24 April: Prime Minister Agim Ceku considers the agreement reached between Skopje and Belgrade on the delineation of Kosova's [Kosovo] border with Macedonia as invalid.
He made these comments today in Prishtina following a meeting with the chairman of the Democratic Party of Albanians [PDSh], Arben Xhaferi.
Ceku believes that the delineation is not an urgent issue and that it will be solved at a more appropriate time for both parties. "Kosova is currently dealing with much more important issues than that."
"We do not recognize any agreement signed between Belgrade and Skopje," Ceku said, adding that this is a stance of the Kosova Assembly, as well.
According to the prime minister, this issue will be settled based on the principles of the international law, without any political or technical influence.
The chairman of the PDSh, Arben Xhaferi, considers the issue of delineation as a calumny, adding that "it must be solved based on the Contact Group principles".
He said that he came to Prishtina to get the political and institutional support from the leaders of Kosova, and particularly Prime Minister Ceku, for the elections that will be held in Macedonia, and at the same time to give full support in order for Kosova to be a sovereign and independent state.
"Kosova is a dike with all the countries in transition regarding democratic elections. Today in Kosova, everyone agrees that the democratic standards during the election have been fully respected. Continuing this conclusion Kosova has moral authority to support democratic elections in Macedonia," he said.
Xhaferi also met with President Fatmir Sejdiu and Kosova Assembly Chairman Kole Berisha.
Ceku confirmed that he will visit Skopje on 5 May. However he added that he is not going there with an offer on the border.
