Serbia states its intention to never recognize Kosovo's independence after International Court of Justice's yesterday ruling.
A working group to find a more permanent solution to the license plate issue, consisting of negotiators from the governments of Kosovo and Serbia, meet for the first time in Brussels. If negotiations are successful, the group will announce their proposals in 6 months.
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.
In an interview with the Serbian division of Euronews, Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić says that any hopes of his country reclaiming Kosovo is unrealistic, and that he is willing to enter a "rational and compromise solution" regarding recognition of Kosovo's independence. However, he says that any agreement reached between the two countries needs to ultimately be decided by referendum.
