Albania Floats Idea Of Balkan SchengenPristina

Fatmir SejdiuKosovo and Albania said they will soon sign an agreement creating a 'mini-Schengen' zone allowing free movement across their borders, a deal that could lead to a wider no-border zone in the region.

Travel between Albania and Kosovo is currently possible by showing one's passport or driver's license.“The agreement will enable citizens to move freely and ease the administrative procedures”, Albanian President Bamir Topi said during his visit in Kosovo.

He dismissed any possibility of uniting Kosovo and Albania, saying "the unification will happen in Brussels, in the European family."
