What’s behind the recent tension between Serbia and Kosovo? | Inside Story

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “What’s behind the recent tension between Serbia and Kosovo? | Inside Story” – below is their description.

The two sides have met in Brussels to resolve a dispute sparked by vehicle licence plates.

The leaders of Serbia and Kosovo have held rare talks in Brussels that European Union mediators hope will de-escalate growing tensions.

The two sides have been at odds ever since Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008.

NATO says it’s increasing its troop numbers along the border, with renewed fears of a possible conflict in the region.

The latest dispute was sparked last month when Kosovo said Serbian identity documents, and car plate numbers would no longer be valid in its territory.

So, are they likely to find an agreement and can conflict be avoided?
