Nachdem die dumme Grüne aus Austria Ulrike Lunacek, nur wieder dummes Zeug von sich gegeben hat, werden die Aussagen dementiert, von der EU Commision, das Verhandlungen mit der Kosovo Mafia, über Visa Freiheit geplant sind. Wie man solche Leute, ins EU Parlament entsenden kann, ist schon mehr wie peinlich. In Serbien werden Mafiöse Zirkel festgenommen, welche der Kosovo Mafia, mit gefälschten Residensen, Serbische Pässe besorgen.
Ulrike Lunacek, ist offiziell Kosovo Bericht Erstatterin! Wie peinlich das eine Dummschnatter, so einen hoch dotierten Posten erhält, wenn man nicht kapiert, was man tut. Im Gegenteil dazu, ist Tanja Fajon, aus Slowenien eines der wenigen neuen Personen, welche aktiv eine Balkan Politik gestalten können.
Der EU Kandidaten Status, für Albanien wurde abgelehnt, weil viele Institutionen nicht arbeiten. Am perversten ist ja erneut dieser Minister Fatmir Mediu, der unbedingt mit der Camarra, Müll Importe nach Albanien organisieren will, obwohl das ganze LAND vermüllt ist,neben der Mafia Ministerin Majlinda Bregu, oder anderen Komikern, welche sich ein Minister Amt gekauft haben.

The European Union is introducing stricter monitoring mechanisms to slow the influx of economic migrants and asylum seekers from Serbia, Macedonia and Montenegro, which were granted visa free travel in December last year.
EU justice and interior ministers on Monday decided to boost the border safety supervision for these countries, to demand stricter checks of their passports, and to increase the exchange of intelligence, Deutsche Welle’s Macedonian service reported.
„We wish to warn these countries about the consequences of the misuse of visa liberalisation,“ Belgian Minister for Migration Melkior Vatle told media.
The move comes after several EU countries in the past year reported drastic increases in the number of migrants from the three states, most of whom applied for asylum but were rejected.
The EC has repeatedly stressed that visa liberalisation does not mean that economic migrants will be granted a prolonged stay, and that the regime only allows tourist travel.
The warnings do not appear to have significantly slowed the number of migrants. Sweden’s National Migration Board told Balkan Insight in October that it had registered 5,300 asylum seekers from Serbia in 2010. The number of Serbian nationals, mostly Roma families, who applied for asylum in 2009 stood at 570, according to the Board’s figures.
In the wake of the rising number of asylum seekers, the ministers tasked the European Commission to publish reports on visa liberalisation every six months.
If the influx continues, the EC can propose the suspension of the visa liberalisation regime in accordance with the Lisbon treaty.
The stricter rules will also apply for Bosnia and Herzegovina and Albania, whose citizens were granted visa free travel at Monday’s session in Brussels. Kosovo is the only country in the region that has not been granted visa free travel.

The European Commission has revealed that it is not ready to start negotiations with Kosovo over visa liberalisation because Pristina does not have a reintegration package for its returnees.
The news comes the day after Albania and Bosnia Herzegovina were confirmed by the European Union’s Council of Ministers as the latest members of the white Schengen list, which grants their citizens visa-free travel across much of the EU.
The announcement contradicts statements made by Ulrike Lunacek, Rapporteur on Kosovo to the European Parliament, who told Balkan Insight last month that the European Commission, EC, would open formal talks in the “coming weeks”.
Michele Cercone, spokesperson for the European Commissioner for Home Affairs, confirmed to Balkan Insight on Monday that authorities in Pristina were not ready to start the visa dialogue.
He stressed that the EC would be ready to start the dialogue with Kosovo once Pristina’s authorities proved they have a re-integration strategy for the returnees.
“To my knowledge there has been no promise to do something or a deadline to do something,” Cercone said.
Kosovo’s parliament has already adopted a re-admission law, which helps paves the way to start visa dialogue, and has signed a number of re-admission agreements with EU members, so that Kosovars living illegally in these countries can be returned home.
But concern has been raised about the return of Roma from Kosovo, in particular. Both the European Parliament and Council of Europe have attacked Germany’s planned return of 10,000 Roma to Kosovo, especially because of the incredibly high unemployment rates among that community.
Delays to Kosovo’s progress towards the EU at the same time as its neighbours, Albania and Bosnia Herzegovina, take an important step forward will entrench views that the world’s youngest country is becoming a ghetto.
This view was confirmed to Balkan Insight last month by Green MEP Lunacek. “Kosovo has just two million people so it would be ridiculous to leave them out and it would affect the democratisation process,” she said. “We cannot leave two million people outside.”
The EC’s 2010 progress report for Kosovo shows more progress compared to last year’s, EU officials told Balkan Insight.
But serious concern remains about the lack of forward movement in the fight against corruption and in the protection of media rights.
The EC will publish the annual assessment of the western Balkan countries on Tuesday, known as the progress report.
