Haradinaj: If we lift the tariff, we will not have mutual recognition

Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj said on Wednesday that if Pristina “lifts the import tariff on Serbian goods, we will not have mutual recognition”.

At a convention of his political party – the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo – in Vushtrri, Haradinaj said: “the formation of the Kosovo Army was a courageous step. It was also courageous to say stop when they mobilized to divide Kosovo. It was courageous to pass the Law on Trepca in government and parliament. It is courageous to say to Serbia today that you cannot threaten our existence. The tariff means the state, if you cannot keep the tariff until recognition, we will not gain mutual recognition among both countries. It is a state-building component, it is not a vote,” Haradinaj said.
