Albanian President Meta quickly discarded Thaci's proposal to grant Albanian citizenship to Kosovars as a way to end Kosovo's isolation.
The available narratives about violent extremism in Kosovo have less to do with Kosovo’s ‘radical Islamists’ and more with projected fears of a Europe that is polarized.
One year ago, the EC recommended visa liberalization for Kosovo. But Kosovars, the only Europeans who celebrate Europe Day, are still spending millions on visas and waiting in degrading embassy queues.
In an exclusive interview with Life in Kosovo, Kosovo President Hashim Thaci discussed the Specialist Chambers, Albania’s mingling in Kosovo affairs, and corruption.
The European Union must decouple the demarcation issue from the visa liberalization process for Kosovo. It was unfairly put there and it is not really relevant for visa liberalisation, as it wasn’t for neighboring countries like Montenegro, Serbia and Albania.
