Serbia wants to separate ethnic Serbs from Kosovo

Serbia will push for a proposal to govern ethnic Serb areas in Kosovo under an interim agreement with the United Nations mission there, the Serbian foreign minister said on Thursday.

Serbia wants to separate ethnic Serbs from Kosovo
Kosovo's 90 percent Albanian majority declared independence from Serbia on Feb 17 with Western support but the move was branded illegal by Belgrade.

About 120,000 Serbs still live in Kosovo.

Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic said an interim agreement between Kosovo's Serbs and the United Nations mission on a "separate administration" there was necessary to avoid conflict.

Former Russian prime minister Yevgeny Primakov claimed on Wednesday that the ethnic partition of Kosovo was the only option to avoid future conflict, and it would entail population movements.
