Serbia and Kosovo failed once again to close their differences and clinch a deal to normalise ties in talks brokered by the European Union lasting through Wednesday until Thursday.
"Today has been a very long and intensive day," said EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton at the close of daylong negotiations ending after midnight.
"I said last time that agreement was close, that the differences were narrow, but deep. I can say with real confidence today that the differences are narrow and very shallow," Ashton added in a statement.
