Comments on: Is Kosovo ready for visa-free travel to the European Union? Beyond the World news headlines Wed, 16 Nov 2016 20:09:42 +0000 hourly 1 By: SilentStatue Fri, 31 Dec 2010 19:47:22 +0000 Kosovo is getting ready for VISA FEE travel, you think? Look..Many people apply for asylum in Kosovo but Republic of Kosovo did not give refugee status to any one yet, Where is Hunam rights of this people who seek protection in Kosovo, Why EU is just counting the numbers of people who seeek asylum in Kosovo but human and refugee rights are abuse in Kosovo by Kosovan gov.
Kosovan immigration should verifie genuine asylum seekers and process their applications further.
100s foreign citizen apply for refugee status in young state of Kosovo but after waiting for months most of them left for Serbia or other country. Asylum seekers in Kosovo don’t get basic risghts human rights as asylum seeker, adults and child don’t have right for Education, work or any sort of financial support or medical care. Single females, childrens, families and single mens live at at same place, Elderly people, kids and adlts share same rooms even some people use drugs and alcohol at same place.
People have to take loan from their family or friends to survive.
Is this you call ASYLUM ??? No one get asylum in KOSOVO …
This is a shameful game to show the world and eu that this number of people apply for asylum in Kosovo but in reality no one get refugee status till now.

The question that needs to be asked is, what good for the EU if they allow citizens from the poorest country in Euorpe to travel into it’s boarders? Fix this place first EU and then allow Visa Free Travel, you will just be importing more problems if you dont

The original resolution contained elements that explicitly condemned Kosovo’s unilateral independence declaration. The compromise deleted those statements. But it contains just a call for “negotiations” and it leaves in the middle whether these should be technical or not.

The examples the article mentions (customs stamps and telephone codes) are actually very unlikely to see a compromise as what the EU majority is pressing for would amount to a de facto recognition of Kosovo.
