Kosovo: Liberalization of the visa regime at the focus of the new government
One of the main points which will be part of the agenda of the new government and parliament of Kosovo will be the liberalization of the visa regime.

This was said by the acting minister of Economy, Mimoza Ahmetaj, who is participating in the meeting of the Regional Council for Cooperation in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

“We’re in the process of concluding the liberalization of the visa regime. We have a final condition to deliver and I am hopeful that once the government is formed and parliament is functional, this will be one of the main points of the agenda of work”, Ahmetaj said.

Ahmetaj has added that work will also continue for other processes, including reforms in the economy, public administration and issues that relate to European integration processes.

But different stances have been expressed by representatives of other political parties in the country.

Prime Minister nominee from Self Determination, Albin Kurti says that the liberalization of the visa regime requires a lot of work to be achieved.

“But this is done through rule of law and by putting notorious criminals in prison”, he said.

Commenting this issue, AAK lawmaker, Time Kadriaj said that the liberalization of visas may happen if the government is serious in its work.

Rapporteur for Kosovo in the European Parliament, Tanja Fajon has called on politicians in Kosovo not to make promises for the liberalization of visas and mention dates, because the visa regime may not be liberalized for another two years. /balkaneu.com/
