U.S Embassy: Remove the tariff, do not apply reciprocity measures

The United States Embassy in Prishtina has reacted after the Kosovo Government decided to drop the tariff on Serbian imports, but apply reciprocity measures.

"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 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 statement reads.
