Serbia states its intention to never recognize Kosovo's independence after International Court of Justice's yesterday ruling.
Kosovo closes two border crossings with Serbia after protesters in Serbia block the border crossings in order to support the ethnic Serbs who are erecting barricades in North Kosovo and who refuse to recognize the independence of Kosovo.
Kosovo formally signs a request to become a member of the European Union. Serbia condemns the request and says that it will ask the five members of the bloc which do not recognize Kosovo to reject the request.
Serbia and Kosovo agree to defuse their previously high tensions. Kosovo will withdraw its police units from protest sites on the Serbian border and the two countries will also end their bans on the other country's license plates.
Kosovo Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti cancels his trip to the United States where talks between Kosovo and Serbia were to be held, after his country's President Hashim Thaçi is indicted by the Kosovo Specialist Chambers and Specialist Prosecutor's Office on war crimes charges. Thaçi also canceled his trip to mediate with Serbia after learning of the indictment the day prior.
