“The European Union called on Kosovo on Wednesday to revoke its decision to impose an import tax on goods coming from Serbia and Bosnia, a move that is likely to further sour relations between Pristina and Belgrade.

Kosovo said on Monday it was imposing an import tax of 10 percent on all goods produced in Serbia and Bosnia but not on international brands. Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj said the move was aimed at ‘protecting local goods.’

Bosnia, Kosovo and Serbia along with Albania, Montenegro, Moldova are all part of the Central European Free Trade Agreement (CEFTA) set up to help ex-communist states harmonize their economic and legal systems with European Union demands.” (Reuters)
