Foggo, who serves as commander of US Naval Forces Europe and commander of Allied Joint Force Command Naples, has commented on Pristina's recent move.

"What is really intended to be achieved by that tax?," Foggo asked after a ceremony in Pristina when Lorenzo D'Adario took over from Salvatore Cuocci as KFOR commander, Pristina-based daily Gazeta Express is reporting on Wednesday.

The general NATO also mentioned the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, saying that "Serbia and Kosovo, with whom the EU is negotiating in a separate process, should strive for Euro-Atlantic integration for the benefit of both nations."

"The 100 percent tax that Kosovo has imposed on goods from Serbia risks the isolation of Kosovo," Foggo said.
