Kosovo hopeful on deal with Serbia to end ethnic partition

Kosovo’s foreign minister says he anticipates a breakthrough with Serbia when the two countries’ prime ministers meet next week to discuss an end to the ethnic partition of the former Serbian province.

Serbia does not recognise Kosovo’s 2008 secession, but is under pressure from the European Union to improve ties and help overcome a split between Kosovo’s Albanian majority and a small Serb enclave in the north.
