Kosovo’s Prime Minister admitted Monday that the two advisors to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who last Saturday visited Kosovo, asked Pristina authorities to suspend tax on Serbian goods.
Haradinaj said that the two political advisors to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Jan Hecker and Matthias Luttenberg, told him the tax imposed by Kosovo Gvovernment in November 2018 on all Serbian and Bosnia-Herzegovina goods should be rescinded, because as they stated, is creating problems to continuation of Pristina-Belgrade Dialogue, Gazeta Express reports.
But Haradinaj said that despite the request of international community representatives the tax will not be suspended. “If international community is failing to convince Serbia to continue the dialogue, they cannot exert pressure on Kosovo instead,” Haradinaj said. Belgrade has conditioned continuation of the EU-facilitated dialogue in Brussels with suspension of tax but Haraidnaj reiterated on Monday the tax will be suspended only after Serbia recognizes Kosovo’s independence. /GazetaExpress/
