Serbia wants Division of Kosovo

Borko.StefanovicPRISTINA, Kosovo — As anticipated by the Serbian political analyst Milan Marinkovic within his recently presented article, titled “Serbia and Kosovo: war of nerves”, Serbian government politicians now seemingly start changing the EU mediated technical dialogue of Kosovo and Serbia into a discussion about the “status” of the Republic of Kosovo: Despite former rejection regarding the Kosovar declaration of independence, Borko Stefanovic, head of the Serbian negotiation team considers “the possibility of talking about the division of Kosovo" aiming at cutting out the northern Kosovo region, which is since Kosovo’s secession in 1999 populated by a Serb majority.

However, a possible territorial division is widely refused by representatives of the government of Kosovo.  In this context several politicians from Kosovo repeatedly “answered” with the request to integrate the southern Serbian region of Presheva, with a said to be almost exclusively Albanian population, into the Kosovan borders. Meanwhile EU and USA representatives likewise repeated over the last days, that a partition is not on the agenda. See e.g.  Radio Free Europe and  B92.
