Serbia-Kosovo deal faces opposition

Serbs call signing of EU-brokered deal act of treason while Kosovans call it betrayal of Kosovo Albanian interests.

    Serbs from Northern Kosovo have rejected a European Union-brokered agreement signed between the governments of Serbia and its breakaway territory Kosovo, intended to normalise relations.

    Some have even described the agreement as an act of treason, and are threatening to hold protests on Sunday and Monday.

    Hashim Thaci, the Kosovo prime minister, is also having to deal with similar opposition, with many calling his signature to the agreement as a betrayal of Kosovo Albanian interests.
