The officials "reiterated its readiness to continue the dialogue with Pristina in order to find a lasting solution after the withdrawal of the decision on taxes (on products from central Serbia).

On the US side, the attitude was expressed about the need to urgently abolish the taxes that Pristina imposed on goods from Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Also, strong support has been expressed to the continuation of the dialogue to find a mutually acceptable and durable solution, which will lead to the preservation of stability, security and further progress of the entire region of the Western Balkans.
