STRASBOURG – First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kosovo Behgjet Pacolli, during his visit in the headquarters of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, requested the support of Members of European Parliament to accelerate the visa liberalization, while reporting on the implementation of European Reform Agenda by the institutions of Kosovo for Stabilisation and Association Agreement.

“During my visit in Strasbourg I requested the support of the representatives of European Parliament for unconditioned support for visa liberalization for Kosovo citizens, while reporting on the implementation of European Reform Agenda by institutions of Kosovo on SAA,” stated Pacolli after the visit.

He added that Kosovo citizens deserve fundamental right of free movement, as all other people of the whole region, and that any other treatment strengthens the belief for inequality and second-class citizens.
