In a press conference delivered in Brussels European Enlargement Commissioner, Johannes Hahn said that Kosovo had to fulfill 95 conditions in order to benefit from the visa liberalization regime and so far, it has delivered 93.
This is the reason why the European Commission may present a last report on Kosovo in May of next year and that will show if there’s a need to issue a second report or not.
Hahn said that there’s still much to do. Hahn was asked why the border demarcation with Montenegro has been established as a condition to Kosovo, when we all know that such condition was not imposed on other countries of former Yugoslavia, such as Croatia. Hahn replied by saying that “we have learned from past mistakes and we don’t want to leave any pending issues”.
Among other things, the commissioner also said that these conditions have not been imposed, but that they are the result of a joint agreement.
Hahn issued these declarations in a press conference delivered in Brussels along with the EU chief of foreign policies, Federica Mogherini and Prime Minister of Kosovo, Isa Mustafa. /balkaneu/com/
