President Thaçi hosted the Foreign Minister of Estonia, Sven Mikser

Prishtina, 16 May – President of the Republic of Kosovo, Hashim Thaçi, hosted today the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Estonia, Sven Mikser.

President Thaçi extended his gratitude to the Minister Mikser for the support that Estonia has given to the people and the state of Kosovo following the declaration of independence.

He stressed that now that Estonia takes the next European Union's presidency, Kosovo expects even greater support in implementing short-term priorities.

“Visa liberalisation remains the immediate priority for Kosovo citizens. Delays created are unjustified," stated the President, adding that the border delineation criteria is unfair.

The President stated that Kosovo's membership in NATO and the European Union remains the only option for Kosovo's citizens. However, President Thaçi reiterated that the EU shall not delay the integration of the Western Balkans, as they are being used by great powers to destabilize the region.

While discussing on bilateral relations, the President urged that, in addition to diplomatic cooperation, they also extend to other areas.

On the other hand, Estonian Foreign Minister, Sven Mikser, stressed  that Estonia will continue its support to Kosovo.
