Scott: New government to lift the tax

The U.S. Ambassador to Serbia, Kyle Scott, said that the new government of Kosovo should lift the tax on Serbian imports.

“We will do everything we can to make the new Government of Kosovo return to the table of talks and this means primarily to lift the 100-percent tax on Serbian products. This tax does not help in moving forward and reach Kosovo-Serbia reconciliation.”

Scott also addressed concerns regarding the documents necessary for voting on 6 October elections in Kosovo saying they were following the situation.

“From what I gather, the rules as to what documents can be used to vote in these elections are the same as those used for mayoral elections that took place recently in the north of Kosovo. We hope every citizen will use the right to vote,” Scott said.

Scott made the remarks following a meeting with President of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic on the 75th anniversary of the WWII rescue operation “Halyard”.
