Enlargement strategy important but gives no time-frame to Kosovo

“Our expectations were and are that this strategy is truly a roadmap on our path to membership by offering a timeframe and concrete stages of Kosovo’s advancement. We have continuously requested a balanced approach, which to a degree we managed to achieve,” Hoxhaj said.

Kosovo’s Deputy Prime Minister, Enver Hoxhaj, told RTK that the enlargement strategy adopted by the European Commission yesterday is an important document as it provides a serious opportunity for the Western Balkans integration into the EU but that in the case of Kosovo is has not given a specific timeframe. 

“Our expectations were and are that this strategy is truly a roadmap on our path to membership by offering a timeframe and concrete stages of Kosovo’s advancement. We have continuously requested a balanced approach, which to a degree we managed to achieve,” Hoxhaj said.
