In particular, H.E. Bernard Nikaj shared his points of view on visa liberalization for Kosovo’s citizens on Schengen territory, the accomplishments and the hurdles in implementing European criteria, the economic growth that Kosovo is undergoing, the state of negotiations of bilateral issues with countries that do not recognize Kosovo’s independence, and, finally, what the EU should do to support and speed up Kosovo’s integration process.
