Sweden is committed to supporting the process of Kosovo’s integration into the European Union, the President of the Assembly of Sweden, Urban Ahlin said at a meeting with Kosovan President Atifete Jahjaga, according to bne Intellinews who quotes a statement on the Kosovan presidential website.
However, the recent revelations about illegal migration of Kosovans to the EU has “hampered the process”, Ahlin added.
Around 100,000 Kosovans are estimated to have left for the EU within the last six months. Hungary, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden and Belgium all reported a sharp increase in Kosovo nationals seeking asylum in December 2014 and January 2015.
