Serbian Foreign Minister appealed on Tuesday for the immediate and unconditional revoking of the tariffs imposed by Pristina on Serbian goods.
He told a Berlin Process meeting in the North Macedonia capital Skoplje that the tariffs are an obstacle to regional cooperation, adding that Serbia is committed to regional cooperation but with strict respect for agreements reached by everyone in the region as a clear condition for success. “That is why I am appealing for the urgent and unconditional revoking of the unilaterally imposed tariffs which are an existential danger to a large number of people,” he said.
Dacic said that official Belgrade did not reciprocate Pristina’s measure because it opposes unilateral steps that inflict damage to efforts to find a compromise.
Kosovo Democratic Alliance leader and former Prime Minister Isa Mustafa echoed Dacic’s call for the unconditional revoking of the tariffs on goods from Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina because of what he called a very delicate and critical stage in Pristina’s relations with Washington. Writing on his Facebook profile, Mustafa said that the tariffs have to be revoked and that reciprocity has to be agreed with the US and European Union, depending on Serbia’s action.
Kosovo Democratic Alliance official (and former foreign minister) Skender Hiseni wrote on his Facebook profile that he met with US special envoy Ambassador Richard Grenell as Mustafa’s emmisary and was told that Washington can’t protect Kosovo from the irresponsible behavior of its government and leaders.
