PRISTINA – President of Kosovo Hashim Thaçi met Tuesday the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Estonia Sven Mikser, Office of President stated.

Thaçi extended his gratitude to Minister Mikser for the support that Estonia has given to the people and Kosovo following the declaration of independence.

He stressed that now that Estonia takes the next European Union’s presidency, Kosovo expects even greater support in implementing short-term priorities.

“Visa liberalisation remains the immediate priority for Kosovo citizens. Delays created are unjustified,” stated Thaçi, adding that the border delineation criteria is unfair.

He stated that Kosovo’s membership in NATO and the European Union remains the only option for Kosovo’s citizens. However, Thaçi reiterated that the EU shall not delay the integration of the Western Balkans, as they are being used by great powers to destabilize the region.

While discussing on bilateral relations, the Thaçi urged that, in addition to diplomatic cooperation, they also extend to other areas.

On the other hand, Estonian Foreign Minister Sven Mikser stressed that Estonia will continue its support to Kosovo.
