Kosovo Serbs want a referendum in Serbia on Kosovo deal

Kosovo Serbs want Serbia to hold a referendum on whether to accept the EU-sponsored deal signed on Friday in Brussels between Belgrade and Pristina that would normalise their relations.

Kosovo Serb deputies in northern Kosovo "demand a referendum in Serbia to be called in which the citizens will decide whether Kosovo will remain in Serbia or accept the deal that would give it a date to start negotiations with the EU," said a resolution adopted after the deal was signed in Brussels.

Like Belgrade, Serbs in northern Kosovo have never accepted Pristina's 2008 declaration of independence.
