Trump’s envoy: There cannot be a mini-Schengen without Kosovo

The U.S. Presidential Envoy for Kosovo-Serbia discussions Ambassador Richard Grenell said on Thursday that he welcomes the initiative for a ‘Balkan Schengen’ stressing that this initiative cannot be successful if the entire region, including Kosovo, is not included.

“We welcome the Western Balkans’ ‘mini-Schengen’ initiative as a way to jump-start the free movement of people and commerce. We believe that for this initiative to be successful, it must include everyone in the region, including the Government of Kosovo. The Trump Administration is focused on helping the entire region create economic opportunities and jobs for young people,” reads a press release issued by the U.S. Embassy in Germany.
