At the same time, he demanded the abolition of taxes on Serbian goods to allow the resumption of the dialogue, Gazetta Express reports.

"The first step should be to continue the dialogue, which I am ready to mediate, by organizing a summit in Paris soon, with the leaders of Kosovo and Serbia, in cooperation with Chancellor Merkel and EU High Representative Borrell," Macron wrote in a letter which the French Ambassador to Kosovo, Marie-Christine Butel, delivered to Kurti on Wednesday.

Macron also stated that the continuation of the dialogue involves actions by both parties.

"Namely, it involves the suspension of the 100 percent fees imposed by Kosovo on Serbian goods, and the suspension of the derecognition campaign of Kosovo initiated by Serbia," the French President wrote.


EU: That's the first step
