Kosovo’s Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj said today that the import tariff on Serbian goods is not an obstacle to the Kosovo – Serbia dialogue, and that Belgrade’s lack of readiness for mutual recognition is what is hindering the process, the news website reports. “The tariff is never an obstacle. We have asked for a framework agreement that includes freedom of movement too. Their lack of readiness for mutual recognition is the obstacle, not the tariff,” he said.
Asked about the upcoming Paris Summit, Haradinaj said that before moving forward it should be clear what a possible agreement between Kosovo and Serbia contains, at least its framework. “If dialogue resumes in autumn, we need a framework agreement so that we know what dialogue will include. There is no point in having dialogue without knowing the elements. We cannot discuss borders with Serbia, we have an international agreement,” he added.
