Serbia deal ends conflict with Kosovo


A landmark agreement to normalise relations with the breakaway province of Kosovo was approved by the Serbian government today – a move that led to Serb demonstrators in Kosovo taking to the streets to chant “treason”.

The Serb parliament approved the deal unanimously and ordered ministries to implement it. The agreement could end years of tensions and put the Balkan rivals on a path to membership of the European Union, provided Serbia puts in place all the conditions meant to address the status of the Serb-populated northern part Kosovo.
