Serbia and Kosovo have agreed on an arrangement for free movement between their countries, the European Union’s foreign policy chief announced Saturday.

Iran PressEurope: The Brussels meeting was called to try to defuse antagonism between the Balkan neighbors that had led to violent incidents in northern Kosovo in recent weeks.

Serbia had agreed to abolish its entry-exit document for Kosovo ID holders, and Kosovo had agreed to not introduce them to Serbian ID holders, said Borrell, in a video statement posted online.

“Kosovo Serbs, as well as all other citizens, will be able to travel freely between Kosovo and Serbia using their ID cards,” he added.

The agreement came after talks in Brussels earlier this week between Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, chaired by Borrell.

New violence flared in late July in northern Kosovo, prompting NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday to say that the 3,700 NATO peacekeepers deployed in Kosovo would do what was necessary to ensure a secure environment. 219
