EC spokesperson Maja Kocijancic said this for the Albanian language daily Shekulli, adding that the status quo is "not an alternative."
Kocijancic recalled that the EU and the US and other countries have repeatedly called on the Pristina government to revoke the taxes and allow the dialogue to continue.
"The status-quo is not an alternative and there is no alternative the resumption of the dialogue between the parties. Tariffs not only stand in the way to the dialogue but also in the way of Kosovo's European integration," she was quoted as saying.
