Serbia perceives a regional market which would be in favor of Russia, Kosovo’s Foreign Minister says

Serbia perceives a regional market which would be in favor of Russia, Kosovo’s Foreign Minister says
Kosovo’s Foreign Minister, Enver Hoxhaj has once again rejected the idea of a joint regional market perceived by Serbia.

The head of Kosovo’s diplomacy said that this idea is an anti-European idea to dominate the region and to increase Russia’s impact in the Balkans.

“Serbia’s idea for a joint regional market is an anti-European tendency to dominate the region and extend Russia’s impact. Kosovo is against a ‘new Yugoslavia’, a model which has failed in the past and which has led to violent wars”, the head of Kosovo’s diplomacy said.

Kosovo’s officials are against a joint regional market, which has been proposed after the regional meeting in Sarajevo,  where Serbia and then the other countries of the region, including Albania, are backing such idea.

The Serb Prime Minister, Aleksandar Vucic has promised the improvement of commercial relations in Western Balkans, once he takes office as president in June.

Vucic said that he would double the efforts for a free economic zone in Western Balkans, including investments in the most important infrastructure such as the highway linking Belgrade with Sarajevo. /balkaneu.com/
