Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj told reporters in Pristina today that even if the government falls and new parliamentary elections are announced, the 100-percent tariff on Serbian and Bosnian goods will remain in force until summer. “As far as the breakup of the ruling coalition and eventual new elections are concerned, the tax will remain in force until June. It would take 45 days to hold the new elections, another 30 days for the formation of the Assembly, and some more days for the government to resign. This means we would enter summer with the tax in force,” Haradinaj was quoted as saying. Haradinaj said he saw the proposal of Assembly President Kadri Veseli to suspend the tariff for 120 days but added that his position and that of the government remains the same. Haradinaj did not reply to questions by reporters if he feels betrayed by the partner of the ruling coalition. Commenting on the list of conditions he mentioned in a letter to the EU and the U.S., Haradinaj said whoever has problems with those conditions is against Kosovo’s right. “I don’t believe the U.S. have problems with these conditions. But if there is someone else that minds these conditions, then we know what relations we have with them,” he added.
