BELGRADE - Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on Thursday expressed the hope the international community would keep reiterating its rational calls to Pristina to give up on the taxes it had introduced against Serbia and the Serbs.

Vucic was speaking with Richard Moore, director general for political affairs at the UK Foreign Office, whom he told Serbia would be prepared to continue the dialogue with Pristina as soon as the anti-civilisational taxes were abolished.

Moore told Vucic he had demanded that Pristina revoke the taxes to enable both sides to continue the dialogue as soon as possible, the presidential press office said in a statement.

Vucic informed Moore of Pristina's failure to meet its sole obligation from the Brussels Agreement - the establishment of a Community of Serb Municipalities.

The introduction of the taxes on goods from central Serbia and the recent adoption of a platform in the Kosovo assembly are the best proof Pristina is not thinking about dialogue but about solutions that could destabilise the entire region, Vucic said.
