Coalition deal ends stalemate in Kosovo

Kosovo’s two main parties have signed a coalition deal to end six months of wrangling since an inconclusive election.

The agreement involves former Pristina mayor Isa Mustafa becoming the new prime minister with outgoing PM Hashim Thaci becoming his deputy and foreign minister.

It ends the long-running disagreement between Mustafa’s Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) and Thaci’s Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK).

Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008 and has been recognised by more than 100 countries, but not by Belgrade.
