Kosovo-Serb handshake creates outrage in Serbia
Belgrade: A handshake between Kosovo Prime Minister Hashim Thaci and former Serbian President Boris Tadic has triggered outrage in Serbia.
The two attended a summit of current and former regional leaders and EU officials in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on Saturday.
Thaci, a former ethnic Albanian guerrilla commander who fought for Kosovo`s independence from Serbia in the late 1990s, and Tadic, who lost a presidential election against a nationalist opponent in Serbia in May, shook hands during the summit. That was the first time the two met face-to-face since the 1998-99 war.
Serbia`s prime minister designate, Ivica Dacic, said Tadic`s presence at the summit is an "enigma," and asked the former pro-Western Serbian leader to clarify his policies now that he`s an opposition official.
Serbia has refused to recognize Kosovo`s independence.
