There cannot be an agreement with Serbia if its approach is 'we must get something', Kosovo's Prime Minister Albin Kurti said on Tuesday, alluding on Serbia's President Aleksandar Vucic repeated statement that in a deal cannot be that one side gets everything and the other nothing.

Speaking to the Kosovo RTK TV talking show 'Justice in Kosovo,' Kurti said such an attitude "could not be the starting point in solving the problems," the KoSSev website reported.

In the meantime, the European Union Commissioner for Enlargement Olivér Várhelyi called on Kosovo new government to abolish the 100 percent import duties it imposed on goods from Serbia and Bosnia in November 2018, and resume the dialogue on the normalisation of relations with Belgarde as soon as possible.

"The taxes must be lifted. A speedy resumption of Belgrade - Pristina is of essential importance," he said, as quoted by Kosovo online.

"We are not here to satisfy appetites, but to heal the wounds. I don't see how we can find a solution with such (Vucic's) approach. We can, together with the Western countries, create a context in which a solution can be found," Kurti said.
