"We want to exhaust regional tools to resolve problems with Serbia"

Rozeta Hajdari, Kosovo`s Minister of Industry, Entrepreneurship said the government will not be introducing reciprocity measures towards Serbia at this stage as it first wants to exhaust all regional mechanisms in an effort to resolve disputes. 

Speaking at a regional conference, Hajdari said that her goal as a minister is to strengthen regional cooperation and resolve all disputes despite, as she said, Serbia's obstacles. 

Hajdari said Kosovo is not well represented in regional initiatives and oftentimes faces challenges "knowing we have a neighboring country who always objects to the signature of the Republic of Kosovo."

"However, together, we will work to be constructive with all countries in the region despite the concerns we have, especially the main ones with one of our neighboring countries," she continued.
