European Parliament has voted to continue negotiations for the visa liberalisation process with Kosovo. Tanja Fajon, the European parliament’s spokeswoman said in a statement that “it is high time that European governments stop the blockade (of the visa liberalisation for Kosovo)”. She added that it’s now up to the EU Council to decide. “A good majority in favour of visa liberalisation for Kosovo. Thank you, European Parliament. We urge EU Council to act NOW!”, Fajon wrote on Twitter. Kosovo is the only country in the Western Balkans whose citizens cannot travel without visas to the European Union. In July last year, the European Commission confirmed that Kosovo fulfilled the conditions for the abolition of visas.
