Kosovo President Vjosa Osmani said on Thursday that she is against any new additional guidelines or reassessment of the current criteria for visa liberalization.

In an interview with KosovaPress, Osmani said she had made this clear to the EU that Kosovo will not be part of any initiative that would prolong the process.

Kosovo’s head of state said the country has fulfilled all the conditions and emphasized that the union has delayed its response.

“We ask to be treated like other states have in the past. I’ve made it clear to all the representatives of the EU that in case they’re considering this kind of approach obviously, it would be unacceptable for us, and we will not be part of initiatives whose aim is to prolong this process even further”, said Osmani.

But Osmani says that most EU officials have vowed that no additional criteria are being considered.

Last week, Kosovo’s President attended the high-level meeting between the leaders of the EU and the Western Balkans where she reiterated her appeal for visa liberalization, as the only country that cannot travel freely in the bloc despite fulfilling all conditions.
