Kosovo Assembly delegation lobbying for visa liberalization in Austria

A Kosovo Assembly delegation, led by Assembly President Kadri Veseli, is paying a visit to Austria as part of a lobbying tour to persuade EU member states to grant visa liberalization to Kosovo. 

Veseli met his Austrian counterpart Wolfgang Sobotka on Thursday. 

The latter promised Veseli that Austria would support Kosovo in the visa liberalization process if the EU finds that Pristina has met all the requirements. 

Veseli said: “We need Austria’s support in our EU integration path. Kosovo has fulfilled all visa the criteria. Therefore, our citizens deserve to have freedom of movement in Europe. We expect that by the end of this year our citizens will finally be able to travel without visas in the EU Schengen area.”
