EU Neighbourhood Policy and EU Enlargement Negotiations Commissioner Johannes Hahn sent a clear message to both Kosovo and Serbia.

Attending the informal meeting of the EU foreign ministers and Western Balkan leaders in Helsinki, Hahn called on Pristina and Belgrade to engage on resumption of dialogue stating that this is very important for the European perspective of the Western Balkan region. “It is crucial for Kosovo to revoke tax” on Serbian goods, Hahn said in his addressing. “The solution, positive outcome of the dialogue between Serbia and Kosovo, is a key element for the future of the European perspective of entire region,” he said. “It is very important the revocation of the tax because this is against principles of the Union, when it comes to free trade, there is no place for tariffs. This must change,” Hahn said. He also called on Serbia to stop the campaign against Kosovo’s statehood. “Both parties should make steps forward. I think a solution is possible and this is not impossible,” Hahn stated. /GazetaExpress/
