Prime Minister Kurti’s logic identical to that of Ramush Haradinaj: Optimistic on visa liberalization and doesn’t believe in the U.S. sanctions
When asked about the U.S. Senator Perdue’s warning that if Kosovo will not drop the tariff, the U.S. should consider leaving their troops from Kosovo, Prime Minister, Albin Kurti, said that he doesn’t believe the U.S. will impose any sanctions to the Republic of Kosovo.
In addition, Kurti said that his tariff plan cannot be implemented once and for all, considering that he wants to have a consensus within the government, in order for his decision to be voted unanimously in the Assembly.
Concerning the meeting with the advisers of German Chancellor Merkel and French President Macron, Jan Hecker and Emmanuel Bonne, Kurti underlined that they’ve had a fruitful meeting.
On the other hand, unlike President Hashim Thaci, who remains skeptical on visa liberalization issue, Kurti stressed that he believes until the EU-Western Balkans Summit, which is to be held in May in Zagreb, there may be moves for lifting visas for the Kosovans.
