Thaci criticizes ‘efforts’ to condition visa liberalisation

President of Kosovo Hashim Thaci has criticized in a Facebook post certain diplomats in Kosovo for, as he said, lobbying for the lifting of the tax on Serbia in exchange for visa liberalization.

“Touristic wandering of some low-level diplomats secretly from one corner of Pristina to the other, from one local institution office to the other, lobbying for the removal of the tax on Serbian goods in exchange for visa liberalization is the latest insult to Kosovo institutions and its citizens. This deceiving and discriminating offer and plans for association with executive powers or the ‘creative’ project for dual sovereignty are nothing more than options aimed at the ultimate partition of Kosovo. These projects are shameful and as such completely unacceptable, now and forever. Kosovo is one and inseparable,” Thaci wrote.
