Prime Minister of Kosovo Ramush Haradinaj refuted reports in the media suggesting that the EU Council of Ministers conclusion at its meeting today will be negative on the issue of visa liberalisation.
“The Council knows the importance of visa liberalisation for Kosovo. The Commission has made an official proposal in May 2016 to move Kosovo to the list of countries with visa-free travel possibilities to the Schengen area, as presented in the report of July 2018 relating to the implementation of remaining criteria. In March 2019, European Parliament supported European Commission’s proposal in the first reading. The decision on this proposal is being considered by the Council,” wrote Haradinaj on Facebook referring to the European Union Council’s preliminary conclusion.
