Newly elected Kosovar Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj repeated on Monday 18 September that he plans to revise a controversial border agreement with Montenegro signed in 2015 which has not yet been ratified by Kosovo's Parliament due to strong opposition resistance.

The border with Montenegro, according to Haradinaj, is badly measured and placed several miles inside Kosovo's territory. However, the Commission for the Measurement of Territory announced in February that Kosovo had not lost part of its territory in nthis agreement. The demarcation of the border with Montenegro is one of the last conditions for obtaining visa-free access to the Schengen countries and Haradinaj has therefore promised to resolve this dispute as soon as possible. New planned changes will also affect Kosovo's borders with Albania. Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama announced on Thursday 14 September that Kosovo and Albania are currently working on simplifying border controls in order to avoid long queues caused, among other factors, by double border checks which have been renewed after pressure from the European Commission.
