EU welcomes Kurti`s decision, calls for renewal of dialogue

The office of the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell has reacted to the announcement of Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti about lifting the import tariff on raw material from Serbia as a sign of goodwill towards normalization of relations.

"We welcome this announcement as the first step and look forward to seeing more details," Borrell's office said adding: "This step could have a positive effect on the reestablishment of regional trade and offering an opening for renewal of dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina facilitated by the European Union."

Borrell's office further said that a lot of time has been lost and called on Serbia and Kosovo to create a favorable environment for resuming talks.
