Serbia calls for new talks on Kosovo but no independence
Serbia on Tuesday said it was willing to compromise on Kosovo's status but ruled out the possibility of full independence.

'We have to talk and we want to talk. We are ready to make a deal,' Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic said during a visit to Athens.

'We are prepared to consider all options because we believe that any compromise is infinitely better than any imposed solution,' he added following talks with his Greek counterpart Dora Bakoyianni.

Jeremic said that his government was prepared to consider any kind of autonomy whatsoever that will bring about self-government to the southern province.

Kosovo has been under the jurisdiction of the United Nations ever since it stopped a crackdown by Serb forces in 1999 who did not want ethnic Albanians, who make up 90 of the province's 2 million people, to seek independence.
