US envoy on Kosovo-Serbia dialogue,
Richard Grenell, called on new Government headed by Albin Kurti to revoke the
tax on Serbian goods as soon as possible and announced progress in Dialogue.
US President Donald Trump’s Envoy on
dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia told the Associated Press that “we expect
the tariffs to be dropped immediately.”
“We made clear to all the (Kosovo) party
leaders that dropping the tariffs was in the best interest of Kosovo and its
economy, and the desire to attract new businesses,” he told AP. Grenell announced
progress in stalled dialogue between Pristina and Belgrade after Kosovo
Government introduced in November 2018 a 100 percent tax on all Serbian imports
countering Serbia’s aggressive campaign against Kosovo’s statehood.
Grenell announced progress in the dialogue.
“There are more announcements coming soon because both sides are eager to move
forward. These moves will create a better life for the people of the region,”
Grenell last month brokered tentative
deals to resume railway and air links between the two states that have been
suspended for 21 years, AP reports. /Gazeta Express/
