“I am happy that we have an understanding to address plus seek solutions for a range of issues, however difficult, that we have inherited from history, like the need to abolish the Law associated with War, Human Rights security, the issues at the borders, and also the agreement for the resolution associated with border incidents. One of the issues discussed was the delimitation associated with maritime areas, as an issue of mutual interest. Each sides have the will to seek a compromise that would make it possible to refer the case to the International Court of Justice”, said Minister Xhaçka on the press conference.

“I think that the solution of the delimitation of maritime areas, the main one of the law of war and the other two agreements, where one of them is to steer clear of the episodes happening at the edges and the other one, the particular maintenance of the border pyramids, will send a message to the worldwide community that international regulation and the international law from the sea is what constitutes the basis for the resolution of all interstate differences, ” he mentioned.
