European Commission says Kosovo made limited progress Izvor: N1

The European Commission said in its latest progress report for European Union candidate countries that Kosovo made limited progress on reforms.

“As regards Kosovo, limited progress was made on EU related reforms and it is important that Kosovo authorities redouble their efforts to advance on the European path, including through the implementation of the Stabilisation and Association Agreement,” the Commission said. Speaking after the report was adopted,

Commissioner Oliver Varhelyi said the political context in Kosovo”over the last year has been volatile and not been favourable to making bold progress on EU-related reforms”. “In order to put back focus on reforms, I am looking forward to launching with Prime Minister [Avdullah] Hoti in the coming days a second phase of Kosovo’s European Reform Agenda,” he said.

Varhelyi said that the EU welcomed the lifting of the 100% tariff on goods from Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina as a crucial decision which allowed the resumption of the EU-facilitated Belgrade-Pristina dialogue.

“The Commission remains committed to achieving visa liberalisation for Kosovo citizens. We maintain our position that Kosovo fulfils all criteria, and we continue to call on Kosovo to make sure that all benchmarks continue to be met,” he said.
