Today were visited four municipalities of Kosovo: Gjilan, Kllokot, Viti and Lipjan, on which occasion minister Çitaku was hosted by the respective mayors of municipalities. In the meetings were discussed the possibilities to advance coordination and cooperation regarding the recommendations and obligations arising from the European Commissions reports both for European integration process and for the Visa Liberalization for Kosovo.
In the meetings with the Mayors, the central topic was to increase the level of cooperation between the local and central government, respectively, the process of reintegration of repatriated persons, treatment of the phenomena of irregular migration in municipal level and possibilities of financing projects within the Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA). At the same time, a topic of these meetings were also the modalities for accommodation of the scholarship holders from the “Young Cells Scheme” program in the municipal administration, a project which is in cooperation with the Ministry of European Integration and European Commission.
