Kosovo, Serbia Mull Territorial Swap in Quest to End Dispute, Join EU

A decade-long dispute between Kosovo and Serbia is compelling both countries to consider a territorial swap along ethnic lines — a move that has long been opposed by both Brussels and Washington.

But the leaders of both Balkan countries say redrawing the borders could help them resolve their differences and advance in their quest for European integration.

Experts have mixed opinions over whether such a deal is workable or even desirable.

Ten years after Kosovo declared independence, there has been little to no progress between the two countries in settling their disputes.

Kosovo considers itself a sovereign nation, though Serbia refuses to recognize it as such.

Both countries want to join the European Union, but Brussels will not allow it until disagreements over Kosovo's sovereignty are settled.
