The US embassy in Kosovo has condemned the decision of Kosovo’s caretaker government to lift tariffs on Serbian goods and introduce reciprocity measures with Serbia.
In their statement, the US predict that these measures will create more problems for the resumption of dialogue between the two countries.
“The United States has been clear that Kosovo should drop all tariffs and not create new barriers because these policies hurt the people of Kosovo and strangle Kosovo’s own economy. We remain opposed to the latest move to implement reciprocal measures on the movement of goods from Serbia. These measures create more problems at a time when the U.S. believes the airline, railway and motor agreements agreed upon by both sides, when implemented, will increase economic development and create the conditions needed for a successful dialogue,” the full statement reads.
