Balkans can enter EU only after solution of Kosovo’s status

Koha Ditore covers a political discussion ‘Balkans and the road ahead to EU’ that was held in Pristina and was organized by International Forum UBT 2005.

‘Europe cannot ignore Kosovo problem,’ said Michel Cullin, director of Vienna Diplomatic Academy, and added that the ‘Balkans should be seen as a European whole with Kosovo having a place in it’.

Skender Hyseni, an advisor to President Rugova, said that ‘solution of Kosovo’s status is a precondition for integration of the Balkans into the EU’.

Participants in the conference concluded that the solution of Kosovo’s final status is important for the future of the European Union.
