EU's message to Pristina: Form government as soon as possible to continue dialogue with Belgrade
Apostolova reiterated that the EU's position is that Pristina should abolish its 100 percent taxes
It is most important that a government is formed in Pristina as soon as possible so that the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina can resume soon, said Nataliya Apostolova, High Representative of the European Union in Kosovo and Metohija.
She stressed that the fact new EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Josep Borrell comes from Spain - which doesn't recognize the self-proclaimed independence of so-called Kosovo - will not affect the future of the Balkans or the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina.
"Borrell made it clear that the dialogue must continue. A lot of time has been wasted. The dialogue must be renewed and that is why the government of Kosovo must be formed as soon as possible," Apostolova told Kosovo Online.
Apostolova reiterated that the EU's position is that Pristina should abolish its 100 percent taxes and that Serb representatives should be included in the new Pristina government.
