EU is not ready to start negotiations with Kosovo over visa liberalisation

The European Commission has revealed that it is not ready to start negotiations with Kosovo over visa liberalisation because Pristina does not have a reintegration package for its returnees.

Kosovo’s parliament has already adopted a re-admission law, which helps paves the way to start visa dialogue, and has signed a number of re-admission agreements with EU members, so that Kosovars living illegally in these countries can be returned home.

The EC’s 2010 progress report for Kosovo shows more progress compared to last year’s. But serious concern remains about the lack of forward movement in the fight against corruption and in the protection of media rights.
