Minority Serbs reject Kosovo, Serbia agreement

Minority Serbs reject Kosovo, Serbia agreement

Serbs in Kosovo say they reject an EU-brokered deal between Kosovo and Serbia on practical issues because it establishes Kosovo's claim to statehood.
Some 600 representatives from Kosovo's Serb municipalities that defy Pristina's authority said in a document approved Monday the agreement was an act of "national treason and against state interests."
The representatives meeting in the Serb-run part of the town of Mitrovica also called upon Serbia to stop talks with Kosovo's ethnic Albanians and to end cooperation with the EU's 3,000-strong police and justice mission.
Ongoing talks between Kosovo and Serbia have resulted in a deal on freedom of movement, civil registries, diplomas, but have not touched upon the sensitive issue of Kosovo's status.
Serbia rejects Kosovo's 2008 declaration of independence.
