Prishtina, 8 May 2018 – In the light of marking the Europe Day, the Ministry of European Integration has organized a discussion with students on the topic “What does European integration mean for youth of Kosovo”, in which were present in the panel, President of the Assembly, Kadri Veseli, Prime Minister, Ramush Haradinaj, EU Representative, Nataliya Apostolova and Minister of European Integration, Dhurata Hoxha.
Minister Hoxha stated that this meeting will not be a monologue but a discussion.
“Today I have the pleasure to be among you, and to discuss about the challenges, responsibilities and expectations we have towards the European integration process. Today, with us are also the President of the Assembly, Mr Veseli, the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Mr Haradinaj, and EU Representative, Ms Apostolova, who the bearers of the highest responsibilities for the European future of Kosovo”, said Minister Hoxha, by emphasizing that although we are very close we still do not enjoy the right of free movement in EU countries.
Rightly, said the Minister, we expect during this year to receive the recommendation and to commence the free movement for the citizens of Kosovo and thus join the other states of the region which for several years now enjoy this opportunity.
“Apart from the implementation of SAA and visa liberalization criteria, we are also coordinating the implementation of the SAA and the criteria of the European Reform Agenda that are being implemented for some time now. The sooner we meet the required criteria, the more our country is strengthened, the more is developed and is closer to EU membership. So, our commitment is crucial to get in pace with other Balkan countries”, said Minister Hoxha.
In the end, Mr Veseli, Mr Haradinaj, Ms Apostolova and Minister Hoxha responded to students who posed questions that mainly focused on the right to study, free movement and integration process.
