The Austrian MEP, Lukas Mandl, has announced that in the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the European Parliament today will be voted the Report on Kosovo, where according to him visas and dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia are the two central topics.
"Today we will vote in the Committee on Foreign Affairs in the European Parliament, the Report on Kosovo, which I have negotiated on behalf of the EEP Group. "We have included strong messages on visa liberalization, recognition, the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue and prospects for young people in digitalisation and other areas," he wrote in a Twitter post.

The issue of visa liberalization is among the constant demands of Kosovo institutions towards the European Union.
Kosovo has met most of the criteria set by the EU to gain visa liberalization.
Meanwhile, the issue of dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia has remained pending due to the recent elections held in Kosovo.
Until the formation of the institutions, it is expected that there will be no next meeting between Kosovo and Serbia.
At least that is what the EU Special Representative for the Kosovo-Serbia Dialogue, Miroslav Lajcak, said recently.
He also said that he does not expect a final agreement to be reached between Kosovo and Serbia this year.
