“MEP Lucas Mandel says that once Kosovo benefits from the visa free regime, its citizens will no longer be granted asylum in EU member countries.

Mandel made this declaration in the fifth meeting of the Parliamentary Committee for Stabilization and Association between EU and Kosovo.

‘Although they say that the number of asylum seekers will rise once the visa regime is lifted, it is not true. However, we should explain to the citizens of Kosovo that they will not be able to be granted political asylum if Kosovo is a country which enjoys stability,’ Mandel said.” (IBNA)
