MFA: Kosovo committed in implementing freedom of movement agreement

Kosovo’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued a reaction regarding the implementation of the Brussels agreement with Belgrade on free movement.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kosovo reaffirms the strong commitment of Kosovo institutions in the implementation of the Brussels agreement and in guaranteeing freedom of movement in line with Brussels agreement for citizens of Serbia. According to Article 3 of the Brussels Agreement on Freedom of Movement, “each party can apply a system whereby identity cards will be accompanied by written ‘entry/exit’ documents for persons from the other party that wish to transit to a third country”, the reaction reads.

Furthermore, added the Kosovo foreign ministry, Kosovo border police are fully implementing the Brussels agreement and that Serbian citizens can enter Kosovo with an ID at any time.

“The border delays are being caused by Serbian border authorities, which has resulted in long waiting periods for the citizens that wish to enter Kosovo.”
