PRISTINA, April 19 (Reuters) - Serbia and its former province of Kosovo have reached an EU-brokered accord aimed at settling relations between the Balkan foes, a Kosovo government minister said on Friday, in a breakthrough that could see the EU open membership talks with Belgrade.
"And the white smoke is out! Habemus pactum! Happy:)))" tweeted Kosovo's EU integration minister, Vlora Citaku. Asked by text message whether a deal had been struck, Citaku replied: "Yes". A second government official also confirmed the agreement.
