      Serbia, Kosovo talks in Brussels fail but new round would be held in July

      Serbia's President Aleksandar Vucic hit out at Kosovo's new PM Albin Kurti on Tuesday after talks in Brussels failed to make progress towards a solution to one of Europe's most intractable territorial disputes, AFP reported. The Balkan neighbours were resuming decade-long negotiations mediated by the EU for the first time in almost a year, hoping to resolve differences still poisoning relations more than 20 years after they separated in war.

      The leaders of Serbia and Kosovo on Thursday held their first face-to-face talks in 20 months under the EU-mediated dialogue process aimed at normalizing relations between the two Balkan neighbours. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo's PM Avdullah Hoti came away from the meeting still far apart on a host of issues but agreed to meet again in-person in early September, news wires reported. Technical-level talks will continue next week among officials.
