Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, who is attending the World Economic Forum in Davos said the statement of Ramush Haradinaj that Pristina will not lift taxes on goods from Serbia is bad news and bad signal not only for Serbia but for the entire region as well.
He repeated the plea for taxes to be revoked, adding there is nothing to talk about as long as taxes remain in force.
“We are strong enough to be able to raise our own economy, regardless of this influencing us badly,” the president said, observing that the reaction would have been different had Serbia reached for similar measures, at the same time “thanking all those from the world who at least formally said that taxes should be revoked, instead of, as usual, blaming ‘both sides’.”
Vucic also announced that Serbia would continue to supply its people in Kosovo and Metohija with goods, “regardless of the difficulties.”
President Vucic added he would meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel at 16.00 hrs today, and the topics of discussion, among others, would include economy and Kosovo and Metohija.
