Serb official suggests partition of Kosovo

Serb official suggests partition of Kosovo

A ranking Serbian official has for the first time publicly suggested that Kosovo should be partitioned between its majority ethnic Albanians and the Serbs.
The unofficial proposal by Serbian Deputy Prime Minister Ivica Dacic triggered sharp criticism Monday from Serbian nationalists who consider the former Serbian province an integral part of the country despite declaring independence in 2008.
There was no immediate reaction from Kosovo Albanians to Dacic's proposal. But, Kosovo officials have in the past refused similar unofficial ideas intended to end lingering ethnic tensions in the Balkans.
Serbia has refused to recognize Kosovo's sovereignty. Seventy-five countries so far have recognized Kosovo's independence _ not enough for it to become a U.N. member.
