McAllister emphasized that Kosovo is part of the European perspective of the Western Balkans and required from Hoxha to have Kosovo focus and work harder in meeting its obligations in two main areas, rule of law and dialogue with Serbia, and other issues required by the EU, so that Kosovo can show its commitment and seriousness to the European perspective.
