Another high-level meeting in Brussels, the first of this size, did not yield clear results, at least not for the public. Preconditions set by both Kosovo and Serbia were the primary cause of this impasse, according to EU.
The EU has led what is known as the normalization dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia for over a decade. A clutch of practical, technical agreements have resulted, although only partially implemented. But the process may now be heading for its collapse in any event.
On the second day of protests in northern Kosovo, a relative calm prevailed among the demonstrators, but incidents targeting journalists and media vehicles occurred. In response to the escalating situation, NATO has decided to deploy additional forces to its Kosovo Force.
