BRUSSELS - Serbia and Kosovo failed to reach an agreement on Wednesday to end the ethnic partition of the former Serbian province, but European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said she hoped a new round of talks next month would seal a deal.

Ashton said after hosting lengthy talks in Brussels between Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dacic and Kosovo Prime Minister Hashim Thaci that the talks would resume on April 2.

"We will, I hope, reach conclusions on April 2," she said at a late-night news conference.

Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic said last week the two sides were "never closer" to settling their differences after several rounds of EU-mediated talks.
