Mogherini: No conditions for dialogue without liftin the tariff (RFE, media)
The EU’s High Representative for Foreign Policy and Security Frederica Mogherini continues to request lifting of the imposed tariff for the products from Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
“While Pristina’s imposed tariffs for the goods imported from Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina remain in force, I do not see conditions for calling the high-level dialogue,” said Mogherini in an interview with Radio Free Europe. The tax, which is seen as an obstacle to the continuation of the dialogue, “is regrettable,” Mogherini said, as, according to her, the elements for the agreement between the parties exist. Mogherini, who soon ends the mandate, spoke from Poznan, Poland, where a summit was held for the Western Balkans.

“Pacolli bans entrance of Serbian officials in Kosovo, on the other hand Haradinaj claims that this is fake news; It is clear that Pacolli made this decision without consulting Haradinaj.
