In a meeting in Pristina today, President of Kosovo Hashim Thaci asked his Albanian counterpart Ilir Meta to enable the people of Kosovo getting Albanian citizenship to be able to move freely. “After the demarcation was imposed as necessary criteria for visa liberalisation, I see no perspective of the Assembly passing this issue. The EU approach also forces me ask the President of Albania to allow citizens from Kosovo apply for dual citizenship as the only hope for free movement,” Thaci said.
Meta however said this would not be an easily achievable objective and that there are other alternatives available. “I believe that the politics in Kosovo in an even more active dialogue with the EU and with Montenegro will unblock the issue of demarcation and Kosovo’s European perspective,” Meta said.
