Young people from Serbia, Kosovo meet to talk

Young people from Serbia, Kosovo meet to talk

As Serbia and Kosovo brace for EU-mediated talks, a group of young people have been one step ahead, organizing a rare public dialogue of their own.
The debate Wednesday in the Serbian capital, Belgrade, gathered five people from Serbia and their five guests from Kosovo, who discussed a range of topics, from everyday life to politics.
Organizers from Youth Initiative for Human Rights group say that the idea is to open communication between the young people from the two nations split by war. Participants said the dialogue is the only way to break down the walls left over from the 1998-99 conflict.
Kosovo is a former Serbian province which declared independence in 2008. Mistrust between the two nations still runs high.
