The controversial wall in the Serbs and Albanians shared the Kosovar town of Mitrovica on Sunday will be aborted. The disappearance of the wall is intended to be the tensions between Serbia and Kosovo to relieve.

The 100 meter long and two meter high wall was built in January. According to the mayor of Northern Mitrovica, Goran Rakic, served this to drive traffic to fend off a pedestrian area that was set up near the bridge over the Ibar.

That bridge connects the predominantly Serbian north of the city with the largely Kosovo/Albanian south.

From Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, was the wall considered as a political act to express the divisions in the city to maintain.


The tensions between the two countries were last month, after Serbia, a train on the rails had turned in the direction of Kosovo, which is in 21 languages, ‘Kosovo is Serbian’ was written.

The two Balkan countries were at the end of January in Brussels, after consultation with the European Union agree to the mutual relations.
