The Kosovo government will protect citizens in the north. We will open wholesale outlets together with Kosovo businesses, the Kosovo Prime Minister, Ramush Haradinaj posted on his Facebook profile today.
The Kosovo Prime Minister announced today that the Kosovo government, in close cooperation with the business community and all relevant institutions, will organize the opening of temporary wholesale outlets in the north of Kosovo – as a response to what Haradinaj assessed as a „simulation of humanitarian catastrophe“ by Serbia and another „destabilization attempt.“
This is the Kosovo government’s response to the two-day closing of shops and other service-related facilities in the municipalities of the north. As the Association of Entrepreneurs from the north and Serb officials claimed, the shops are closed in protest against Haradinaj’s decision to introduce a 100% tax increase on products from Serbia.
„Today, we have once again given an institutional response to all the actions of Serbia, a response that will seal the sovereignty of the country, demonstrate the civic solidarity, responsibility and concern of the Government of the Republic of Kosovo towards all citizens of the Republic of Kosovo,“ Haradinaj underlined.
Haradinaj described the current crisis in the north a „special war“ led by „espionage networks.“ With these statements, the Kosovo Prime Minister joined the Serbian President, Aleksandar Vucic, who has been repeating the same messages on the “special war” and „espionage networks“ for months.
In the past few days, the stores in the north suffered a shortage of goods as a result of the cessation of the procurement of goods from Serbia and the simultaneous boycott of Albanian distributors by Serbian traders. Shops will be completely closed today and tomorrow as a form of protest against the 100% tax on the import of goods from Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina introduced by the Kosovo government last November.
