Hoxha: Visa liberalization decision, after EU elections

Kosovo’s Minister for European Integration, Dhurata Hoxha, said she doesn’t expect the decision on visa liberalization for Kosovo to be taken before European Parliament elections set to take place this May.

“At the present circumstances in the EU our issue is not a priority and it would not be realistic to expect a decision before elections,” Hoxha said adding that she has been insisting on the visa liberalization issue to be included in the EU Council agenda in June. 

“So far, none of the countries I had meetings with opposed liberalization but nevertheless many don’t want to decide on this before parliamentary elections,” Hoxha noted.
