PRISTINA, Kosovo (AP) — The leaders of Serbia and Kosovo are meeting in Brussels to continue talks on the implementation of a European Union-backed plan to normalize ties between the former war foes. EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell convened the Tuesday night meeting between Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Prime Minister Albin Kurti of Kosovo. Their agenda included endorsing a declaration on the more than 1,600 people who remain missing from the 1998-99 war in Kosovo, which was a Serbian province with an armed pro-independence movement at the time. They agreed to create a joint commission“to resolve the fate of the remaining missing persons.” Kosovo declared independence in 2008, but Serbia does not recognize its statehood.
