Despite the fact that Kosovo broke away from Serbia in 2008, Serbia still does not recognise it as an independent country, whilst many other countries have already done so.

Nonetheless Serbia and Kosovo have brokered a deal in which Kosovo will get its own police and appeals court. Whilst it is a smell step, it will hopefully help both nations towards EU and Nato membership.

It is thought that EU membership talks with Serbia will not commence until Serbia loosens its control on the region. However, there is still tension between the minority of ethnic Serbs in the northern Kosovo against the majority ethic Albanians.

Do you think this deal is a positive sign for both countries?
