European institutions encouraged to lift visa regime for Kosovo

In a written reply to "Zeri", the European Commission said it was encouraging the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers to move forward in line with the proposal for visa liberalization for Kosovo. 

“Kosovo has made significant progress in the last two years and it is important for implementation of all standards to continue,” European Commission stated. 

At the same time, Minister of European Integration, Dhurata Hoxha, said she was hopeful that the people of Kosovo will be able to travel freely to Europe by the end of the year. 

She said Kosovo has given enough evidence to be granted visa liberalization while Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj said that the visa liberalization issue should remain a priority for Kosovo despite other debates going on at present.
