Kosovo Government Rejects NATO-Serb Deal

French NATO peacekeepers were deployed to the Brnjak border crossing in northern Kosovo following the outbreak of clashes

From Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty:  Kosovo’s government has rejected a new agreement between NATO peacekeepers and minority Serbs over control of two disputed border crossings with Serbia in northern Kosovo.

In an August 3 statement, NATO said Serbs had agreed to remove roadblocks in the region.

It also said NATO soldiers will continue to control the two disputed border crossings with Serbia until at least mid-September.

Kosovo’s ethnic Albanian-led government, however, which seeks to control trade at the border, has rejected the agreement, calling it in a statement "unacceptable and unfeasible."  (photo: AFP)
