EP Rapporteur: Kosovo is off the train to visas, 2019 more complicated

Igor Soltes, the EU Parliament Rapporteur on Kosovo, reminded to Kosovo politicians the time when Kosovo citizens were close to traveling without visas. He says that the advice of his predecessor, Ulrike Lunacek, was not heard when she called on Kosovo authorities to ratify the Agreement on border demarcation with Montenegro. Soltes during an interview with Gazeta Express, commenting on the statement of Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj that Kosovo might get visa liberalisation in March 2018, said that sometimes the promises of politicians do not match with reality. “I do wish his words were true but days are passing by quickly and I don’t see much progress,” Soltes said.
