Vucic to US envoy: Problems with Pristina should have been addressed earlier Izvor: N1

Pristina had stopped a dialogue on normalisation of relations when it did not implement the deal on the Community of Serb Municipalities (CSM), introduced import tariffs, adopted the negotiating platform and form its army, Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vucic told the US ambassador to Belgrade Kyle Scott, the FoNet news agency reported on Monday.

Vucic said the international community should have earlier dealt with the problems that put the dialogue on hold, especially regarding the suspension of the 100 percent taxes on goods from Serbia and Bosnia.

He added he was not optimistic, but if Pristina withdrew the tariffs, Serbia would be ready to talk.

Vucic’s office statement quoted Scott as saying the US supported the resumption of the dialogue and that it was necessary to find a way for that since it was in the interest of both Belgrade and Pristina.

Last week, a Kosovo official said Belgrade failed to implement an energy deal and was sabotaging Pristina in its effort to join some international institutions. The official said the taxes were the only thing Kosovo could do in return.
