Self-Determination activitst clash with KPS members (Tanjug)
The news agency quoted Kosovo Albanian officials who said the decision was made with "two thirds" of deputies voting in favor.
The Brussels agreement was initialed by Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dačić and Kosovo Prime Minister Hashim Thaci in Brussels on April 19, after which the governments in Belgrade and Priština adopted the document.
Members of the radical ethnic Albanian party Self-Determination Movement clashed with police in front of the assembly building on Thursday.
Because of this, the session was suspended for a while, while leader Albin Kurti addressed the assembly to say that the agreement was "damaging to Kosovo," as it had "ceded control over the north to Serbia."
"I would call on the international community not to support the Self-Determination, that's not necessary, it's only necessary that they say the truth about these criminals," Kurti was quoted as saying.
On Friday, ambassadors posted in Kosovo by five western countries issued a joint statement strongly condemning the violent acts of the Self-Determination Movement and its activists, witnessed yesterday "inside and outside" the assembly building.
