MACEDONIA URGES FOR QUICK BORDER DEMARCATION
Macedonia urged today for quick start of the process of demarcation of the northern border in the part towards Kosovo.
"A request has been sent to the competent institutions of Kosovo for establishing a joint panel tasked to carry out demarcation of the shared borderline," government's spokesman Ivica Bocevski said in a written statement.
The statement further says that the joint panel should work on demarcation of the border "in line with the 2001 International Agreement and within the deadlines set in the Martti Ahtisaari's plan."
MD: Macedonia was hoping to settle this issue before Kosovo declaring independence by talking with the Serbian authorities, but over the years it has lead to nothing.
