Serbia rejects EU-brokered Kosovo deal

Serbia has rejected a European Union-brokered plan to tackle the ethnic partition of its breakaway province of Kosovo, a move that could hurt Balkan country’s EU membership aspirations and fuel tensions in the region.

The EU had given Serbia until Tuesday to say whether it would relinquish its effective control over northern Kosovo in exchange for the start of membership negotiations.

“The government of Serbia cannot accept principles verbally presented to its negotiating team in Brussels, since they do not guarantee full security and protection of human rights to the Serb people in Kosovo,” Ivica Dacic, Serbian prime minister, told reporters.
