Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj said after meeting the Minister of Trade and Industry Endrit Shala on Tuesday, that the Kosovo government is interested to rescind the 100-percent tax if Serbia recognizes Kosovo’s statehood.
Haradinaj did not want to comment on President Hashim Thaci’s remarks about the tax, saying that “we love the President very much but roles of the institutions are divided”.
“You have put us in a bad position about the President, I don’t have a comment. The President has his own duties and the government has its own,” Haradinaj said.
Haradinaj further said that he has received good news related to the strategic investors for approximately €2 billion investments in the first ten days of this year in sectors of tourism and energy. Asked about the demands of the Trepca miners, Haradinaj said this enterprise has been hostage to political issues and added that the government is ready to unblock the situation.
Asked about eventual dismissal of the Minister for Agriculture, Nenad Rikalo, Haradinaj said that this will happen when the time comes.
