Serbia and Kosovo have settled an ethnic dispute over the movement of citizens across their border, European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said on Saturday, APA reports citing Reuters.

"We have a deal," Borrell said in a tweet. "Kosovo Serbs, as well as all other citizens, will be able to travel freely between Kosovo & Serbia using their ID cards. The EU just received guarantees from PM (Albin) Kurti to this end."

The dispute stemmed from predominantly ethnic Albanian Kosovo's declaration of independence from Serbia in 2008, something Belgrade has refused to recognise.
