Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj has not commented the request of the EU officials who urged Kosovo authorities to revoke the decision on imposing 100 percent tax on all Serbia;’s goods. He said that twenty years after the war Kosovo continues repatriating mortal remains of Albanians found in mass graves in Serbia and Belgrade gives no explanation how these bodies ended up in Danub river.
Haradinaj refused to comment on Serbia’s conditioning of the dialogue with revocation of tax, saying that he is not impressed with Serbia’s complaints. Haradinaj said that Kosovo has accepted talks always without conditioning them despite the fact that twenty years after the war Kosovo continues to repatriate war victims’ remains handed over by Serbia. “I have no comment on Serbia’s stance, even if this stance is endorsed by the EU, I still have no comment,” Haradinaj said. “You know we continue repatriating war victims’ remains at the border with Serbia. During my first mandate as Prime Minister in 2004, I went to the border crossings of Merdare to repatriate the remains of people,” whose bodies have been found after they went missing because of the 1998-99 war, Haradinaj said. “Kosovo authorities received no certificate how these people died, they were found in mass graves in Batajnica, dumped in Danub river, but Serbia gave no explanation how these bodies ended up in Serbia,” Haradinaj stated.
