     - BRUXELLES - EU VISA liberalisation for Kosovo's citizens is getting closer and closer and it is a priority on both Brussels' and Pristina's agendas. EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, EU Commissioner for Enlargement Johannes Hahn, and Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Kosovo Behgjet Pacolli met in Brussels on Wednesday and Thursday. They discussed the EU integration agenda of Kosovo, focusing on visa liberalisation and the EU facilitated Dialogue.

    "With the new Pristina's government in office, Kosovo is well placed to move forward on fulfilling the only two remaining conditions for visa liberalisation, notably to ratify the border demarcation agreement with Montenegro and to sustain the track record on the fight against organised crime and corruption", Federica Mogherini said.

    The meeting with Pacolli was "good", Hahn wrote on his Twitter account, cheering the country up to "use momentum".
