Kosovo president indicted for war crimes​; Americans barred from EU?

Carl Bildt, former Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Sweden, provides his perspective from Europe:

What will happen to the president of Kosovo?

Well, if the indictments that have now been published are confirmed, then he actually faces arrest. And we'll have to go to The Hague and then face a lengthy, complicated trial where our protection of witnesses is going to be quite a problem. It's going to take years. And no question, this will bring significant turmoil to the politics of Kosovo.

Will Americans be prevented from entering the European Union?

That's now being discussed by the by the ministers over videoconference with Brussels. But on the criteria that are there at the moment, it looks not unlikely that will be the case. But the debate is still ongoing.
