Macedonia and Kosovo have agreed on Friday [5 May] that border demarcation is technical rather than political issue, and reiterated their pledges for border inviolability, good neighbourly relations and economic cooperation.
"We do not pledge for shifting of borders. Border demarcation is an issue of technical not of political nature," said the visiting Prime Minister of Kosovo interim government Agim Ceku after the meeting with the Macedonian Prime Minister Vlado Buckovski.
Ceku's visit to Skopje comes at an invitation of Macedonian premier. Government officials, business delegation and some 35 journalists accompany Ceku on his trip to Skopje.
"The former administrative border of the Former Yugoslavia will be the one pending demarcation once certain conditions are met i.e. once we get a partner with a full international credibility," PM Buckovski said, adding that Macedonia has no political problem regarding this matter.
