Kosovo Serb leaders discuss NATO's demand to remove roadblocks
ZUBIN POTOK, Kosovo (AP) ' Kosovo Serb leaders are meeting to discuss whether to lift their roadblocks in the north of the country after NATO warned it would take action unless that was done soon.
For nearly three months, Serbs have been blocking main roads in northern Kosovo to stop the country's ethnic Albanian leadership from extending their control over the part of Kosovo populated mostly by ethnic Serbs. Serbs reject Kosovo's 2008 declaration of independence from Serbia.
NATO-led troops in Kosovo have warned the Serbs to lift the blockade. The peacekeepers say they want to establish freedom of movement in the region and reopen supply routes for their troops.
Kosovo Serb leaders are likely to remain defiant Wednesday.
