“Kosovo will keep its 100 percent tariffs on Serbian goods until Belgrade recognizes Pristina, Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj said on Monday, defying calls by the European Union and United States for the tariffs to be abolished.

Last month Haradinaj’s government raised tariffs on locally-produced Serbian and Bosnian goods to 100 percent from 10 percent because Belgrade blocked Kosovo’s membership of Interpol.” (Reuters)

“Ivica Dacic, Serbia’s Foreign Minister, said on Monday the whole international community was on a test to show if it could control Pristina, the Beta news agency said.

‘I can’t believe that so powerful countries cannot influence Pristina,’ Dacic said, adding he expected those countries to show they could put pressure on Kosovo.” (N1)
