Kosovo PM Ramush Haradinaj has promised big steps forward for Pristina before meetings in Brussels this week, such as visa liberalisation and a new Kosovo army, but observers say this is unrealistic.

Kosovo’s Prime Minister, Ramush Haradinaj, has promised to deliver visa liberalisation and the establishment of a Kosovo army by March ahead of a series of informal meetings with other regional leaders in Brussels on Monday.

“There will be bilateral meetings between [EU foreign policy chief, Federica] Mogherini and each of the leaders, and bilateral meetings between the western Balkans’ leaders will also take place…informal meetings,” the head of Haradinaj’s information office, Halil Matoshi, told BIRN.

Before leaving for Brussels, Haradinaj told public broadcaster RTK that Kosovo will enjoy visa-free European travel and be free to found a national army by March.
