The Prime Minister of Kosovo Ramush Haradinaj, said that tax on Serbian goods will remain in power.
“While we have only suggestions for fruitless, aimless, and without clear deadlines, without a pre-agreed contract and international guarantee that the final agreement resulting with recognition will be signed, the tax remains in force.
I am deeply convinced about the possibility of reach of the comprehensive, legally binding agreement with Serbia, which results with recognition. We are intensively working for a final contract, final agreement, in this regard we also submitted the big book with chapters and the draft of this agreement. We have done all this with the intention to make sure that when we sit with Serbia, we have sustainable content, with facts and arguments.”
Haradinaj added further that the tax on Serbian goods does not intend to impede and prolong reach of the comprehensive and legally binding agreement with Serbia, which would result with recognition.
“In the contrary, the government of Kosovo would suspend the tax temporarily, only after an international guarantee that we will sit to sign the final agreement, which should result with mutual recognition. The guarantee means that there is a substance, agreed contract in principal and it is only awaiting signing of this agreement, which results with recognition,” Haradinaj wrote.
