Belgrade urges US to 'bring Pristina to reason' Izvor: Tanjug/Sava Radovanović

Serbia’s Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said on Wednesday that Belgrade counted on the US help and its wish to be constructive regarding the dialogue with Pristina on the normalisation of relations, but that Washington should “push” Pristina into the reason, the Beta news agency reported.

In his comments on Matthew Palmer, the US special envoy to the Western Balkans, statement that Washington will support Pristina’s Government which is committed to the dialogue, Dacic says the US can affect Kosovo to lift the 100 percent import tariffs on goods from Serbia and Bosnia introduced last November.

"Serbia is ready to resume the dialogue, but the condition for that is, as we said numerous times, that Pristina has to withdraw the tariffs. We hope that after Kosovo's elections (due on October 6) the European Union and the US will help with that," Dacic told the Belgrade Blic daily.

He adds the talks are always desirable but have no sense if one side always gives something while the other avoids making the moves it committed itself to.
