Greece in favour of Kosovo joining the EU

Greece on Friday said it was in favour of Kosovo joining the EU and boosted its economic collaboration with Pristina, despite not yet having recognised the Balkan country’s independence.

“There are varying opinions regarding the status of Kosovo within the European Union (…) but everyone agrees that the eastern Balkans have prospects in the EU,” said Foreign Affairs Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos.

Following a meeting with his Kosovo counterpart Enver Hoxhaj, Avramopoulos said the country “should work towards meeting the criteria and carrying out the reforms” required by the EU.
